Chalkbeat‘s Christina Veiga takes a look at Richard Carranza’s first year as NYC schools chancellor, in particular, his willingness to address integration in a city where nearly 70 percent of the student body is Black and Hispanic.

“New York City is having a discussion of the likes it hasn’t had since 1964. That was really the last time there was a serious effort to integrate schools,” said Richard Kahlenberg, a researcher at the progressive think tank The Century Foundation.

But with his first full school year nearing an end, many observers are still waiting for Carranza to just as clearly lay out his vision for the city’s classrooms, as well as concrete plans for making that vision and, real movement on integration, a reality.

It is an open question whether he has the time left to make an impact on such a gargantuan system, and a problem as intractable and longstanding as segregation. In New York City, the mayor ultimately controls the schools and appoints the chancellor — and de Blasio has just two years left in his term-limited tenure.

Meanwhile, he has also restructured leadership roles and sought to streamline bureaucracy at the Education Department, and parents and students interviewed get the impression Carranza and his team do want to listen and work together.

Inside the classroom, are changes being felt? Read much more on Carranza’s first year, at Chalkbeat.
