Cathie Black Protest: Education Experts Apply For Top Hearst Job

Posted: Updated:


Education experts are protesting the appointment of Cathie Black to NYC schools chancellor earlier this week.

Green Party members lined up at Hearst tower with resumes in hand to try to apply for Cathie Black's old job as head of Hearst Magazines.

Poking fun at Black's inexperience in education, one protestor brandished a print-out of an article entitled "Do You Know Where Your Book Publishing Business Is?" and explained why she was qualified to run the entire company. "I've studied it," she said in a Daily News video, "and I'm sure I'm as qualified as she is to take over the New York school system." WATCH:
