From the Daily News:
A Queens high school where the daughter of city schools Chancellor Dennis Walcott teaches gym is so disorganized that many students don’t know where their classes are or when they start.
Some kids at Metropolitan High School in Forest Hills have gotten 10 different class schedules in 11 weeks of instruction, angry parents say.
But this is all news to Walcott, because he refuses to talk shop with his daughter.
“We try not to mix our respective lives as far as education is concerned because she is her own person and teacher,” Walcott told a room of angry parents at the Panel for Educational Policy Thursday night.
DeJeanne Walcott, who earns $57,000 a year teaching gym at the school, has been a city teacher since 2010.
The chancellor blamed rapid enrollment growth at the school ’t mentioned the issue to him ."My daughter and I have worked out where she's not passing information," said Walcott, adding that he just heard about issues at the school "about two weeks ago."

Walcott out-of-touch with scheduling snafus

That sounds like a lie to me. He doesnt speak to his daughter about her work life/job, when he is her boss!!! Does he really expect the public to believe that...
More clueless administrators - it get's better each year!
So he doesn't know what's going on in school with his own daughter, but we pay him to be responsible for all the kids who attend NYC public schools? Good job!
Yeah,it's tough like that, having to maintain "plausible deniability" when your own daughter is essentially your employee,Quandaries of modern life,no?
nother M-Fin' Bloomberg fraud,huh?
Ms. Walcott is a great gym teacher and her father position has no effect in her teaching. Keep on doing a good job with our kids.
