AP sources: Ex-teacher Farina to lead NYC schools

NEW YORK (AP) -- Two people briefed on the decision say a former teacher and principal is being appointed the next leader of New York City schools.

The people say Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio will announce Monday that he has chosen Carmen Farina (fah-REE'-nah) as chancellor of the nation's largest school system.

The people were briefed on the decision but not authorized to speak publicly until de Blasio announces his choice. He has scheduled a news conference late Monday morning.

Farina is a longtime ally of de Blasio, a Democrat. She helped inform his promises to offer universal pre-kindergarten and expanded after-school programs for middle schoolers.

The 70-year-old Farina has been a New York City teacher, principal, superintendent and deputy chancellor.

The New York Times first reported the planned appointment.
