Dear Cathy:

?Monday is Cathleen P. Black's first day of school??so begins a provocative story by Elissa Gootman in the NY Times.?The Times asked some of New York City's ?most respected principals? to give the new Gotham schools Chancellor ?some advice.?

They do.

It's a terrific roundup of opinion?educated opinion. Let's hope Black is listening.
