Head of Miami schools tapped as next DOE chancellor

Carvalho expected to leave Miami-Dade to become New York City schools chief

De Blasio will officially announce Carvalho, 53, on Thursday as his chancellor pick to run the nation's largest school system, City Hall spokesman Eric Phillips said.

De Blasio struggled for months to find a replacement for retiring Chancellor Carmen Fariña, 74, and was widely criticized for conducting his search in secret.

He's spent the last four years as superintendent of Miami public schools. "Put the label on me", Carvalho said. He was named national superintendent of the year in 2014 and started his career as a physics teacher.

Mr. Carvalho came to NY at age 17 on a visa that he overstayed.

"I came to this country at 17. I painted places, homes, bused tables, waited on tables, which tells us once again that the American dream that we discuss so much is a real dream that is achievable".

Rich Rodriguez alleges accuser tried to extort $7.5 million from him
Rodriguez's former assistant Melissa Wilhelmsen accused Rodriguez of verbally and physically harassing her. Rodriguez was sacked in January as details of the alleged harassment became public.

He has led Miami's public school system since 2008, and in 2012 the district won the Broad Prize for Urban Education.

"Over my dead body will anyone walk into our schools and yank any child from the sanctity and the protection that schools, as sanctuaries of the young, provide", he said in a speech last November. Carvalho would go from leading the nation's fourth largest school district to its biggest.

The incoming chancellor started his two-decade career in Miami's schools as a teacher, eventually becoming a principal and climbing the ranks to become superintendent almost 10 years ago.

In a speech a year ago, he defended immigrant students who are living illegally in the United States.

Michael Mulgrew, president of the United Federation of Teachers, said in a statement he looks forward to working with Carvalho, "who has had a collaborative relationship with his district's teaching staff".
