New York State Education Department Commissioner David Steiner To Resign
Shaking things up a little more in the wake of Cathie Black's resignation, New York State Education Department Commissioner David Steiner has announced that he too will be stepping down. Commissioner Steiner was responsible for granting the waiver that overlooked Cathie Black's lack of credentials and allowed her to become chancellor. Commissioner Steiner intends to be out sometime before August 2011. He and Ms. Black are joined by several other education officials from the NYSED and the NYCDOE who recently announced plans to move on.
