Below is the letter from Coalition for Public Schools and Communities on the chancellor selection as well as testimonies from Fritz Mulhauser, Gary Ratner and Mark Simon. Council Member Grosso's letter to the Mayor on the search is followed by a research paper from AdvancEd - Advice to States and Districts on the Possibility of a New Approach to Accountability and School Improvement Under ESSA implications. It has implications for the qualities we might look for in a new chancellor. Finally there are notes from a call between advocates and the search firm.
