CITY HALL -- With his decades of work in the New York City public school system, incoming city schools Chancellor Dennis Walcott could not be more different from Cathie Black.
Unlike his predecessor, who hailed from the media world and sent her children exclusively to private schools, Walcott is a former public school teacher who logged nearly a decade as Deputy Mayor for Education, and his grandchild is a fourth-generation student in the city's public schools.
