York College President Marcia V. Keizs will welcome Chancellor Joel I. Klein, New York City Department of Education, to the campus as the featured speaker at the York College Executive Leadership Breakfast. The program will be “A Conversation with Chancellor Joel I. Klein.” The Chancellor oversees over 1,600 schools with 1.1 million students, 136,000 employees, and a $21-billion operating budget.
When Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg appointed Klein, a graduate of New York City public schools, as the first Chancellor of the newly-reorganized Department of Education, he called the new Chancellor “a true leader who never shies away from the tough and sometimes controversial decisions that are necessary to implement change.”
Free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
