Statement on Regents Chancellor Merryl Tisch
FOR RELEASE: October 26, 2015
"Board of Regents Chancellor Merryl Tisch deserves praise for her nearly two decades of service to public education in New York State. During her tenure as Chancellor, she sought to improve lower performing schools, close the achievement gap, and improve accountability. Through it all, she demonstrated a resiliency and unyielding belief in high standards for all of our students. Like that of a school board president, her job as chancellor of the state board of education is very difficult. NYSSBA thanks her for her years of service in this challenging position."
