Texas is taking over the school system that Chancellor Richard Carranza left crumbling to take the top job in NYC.
The Texas Education Agency said this month it will oversee the Houston Independent School District after finding it failed to “deliver the best possible education to every Texas child,” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced.
Carranza served as superintendent of Houston schools, starting in August 2016. In March 2018, Mayor de Blasio hired him to helm the nation’s largest school system.
When Carranza left for the Big Apple, the Houston Chronicle wrote he “leaves behind a legacy of chaos.”
“If Mayor de Blasio and others think they’ve scored the next great wunderkind, they should think again,” the paper said.
