New York City Chancellor Richard Carranza talks forcefully about making public schools more equitable for the black, Latino, and poor students who comprise the majority in the nation’s largest school district. His blunt language about how segregated the schools are in New York is not typical of superintendents. But in his first year on the job, Carranza has run into strong headwinds and political pushback as he pursues an equity agenda that includes overhauling admissions for the city’s most elite high schools. In his upcoming keynote speech at Education Week’s Leaders To Learn From event, Carranza will share what motivates him to keep pushing to change long, entrenched practices that he believes are keeping far too many students from accessing opportunities to learn.
