New York Law School’s CityLaw Breakfast Series continues with New York City Department of Education Chancellor Carmen Fariña speaking on “Setting the Priorities: Equity and Excellence for All.”
Fariña began her career as a classroom teacher specializing in social studies and went on to become Principal of P.S. 6 in Manhattan. In 2001, she was elected Community Superintendent of Brooklyn District 15 and later served as Superintendent for Region 8. From 2004 to 2006, Fariña served as Deputy Chancellor for Teaching and Learning at the Department of Education, and prior to becoming Chancellor in 2014, she worked as a consultant in the city’s schools, particularly assisting middle school principals.
Anthony W. Crowell, Dean and President of New York Law School, and Professor Ross Sandler, founding director of the Center for New York City Law at New York Law School, will give opening remarks.
CityLaw breakfasts are held six to eight times a year at New York Law School and feature prominent speakers discussing current government and political issues. They are free and open to the public; however, donations are welcome. An audience Q&A follows each speaker’s remarks.
This is the 144th CityLaw Breakfast. Video presentations from past CityLaw Breakfasts can be viewed here. Founding sponsors of the breakfasts include Consolidated Edison, Verizon, and Greenberg Traurig LLP.
