He just gets more and more ridiculous. His partner? NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio.
I previously posted on this blog the incident with Burt Sacks. See "Sex, Lies and Newspapers":
In September 2001, I was the Editor of the PA Bulletin, the Parents' Association newsletter at Stuyvesant High School. Stuyvesant is about 1 city block away from the World Trade Center, so my daughter was front row center to the planes which flew into the Towers.
Unfortunately, we did not know that Stuyvesant was not declared residue-free before the students were told to return to the Stuyvesant Building on Chambers Street after they were moved to Brooklyn Tech, where there just was no room. In order for the Principal of Stuyvesant, Stanley Teitel, to make parents and students comfortable being in the building, he asked Chancellor Harold Levy to take an office next to his on the first floor. Then he asked me to keep Chancellor Levy company. Mr. Levy and I had many conversations - actually he did most of the talking and I just listened - but one day I started talking about the theft of more than $13,000 from the Parents' Association at Booker T. Washington MS 54 (and here is part 2) where I was PTA President. Levy told me he would call his good friend Burt Sacks, and he did, right then and there. Burt told me to come to his office at 110 Livingston Street, 11th floor. So I made an appointment.
When I got to 110 Livingston St. in Brooklyn, getting to Burt's office was like visiting the President of the United States. On the 11th floor when you get off the elevator there was a guard and a huge American Flag. I told the guard my name, showed my ID, and waited until I was told I could go to Burt's office. And Burt was not even Chancellor! I just felt this kind of show of power was overdone.
This is what happened next:
"In or about November, 2002, I was at Tweed (NYC DOE headquarters) for a meeting of parent leaders, when we heard that everyone had to leave immediately in order for new Chancellor Joel Klein to have his cabinet meeting in the room we were in. I just happened to have the complete story of what Burt Sacks had said to me, as well as the details of what I uncovered at Booker T. Washington MS 54, in an envelope with "Chancellor Joel Klein" written on the outside. i assumed that Joel would want coffee, so while my friends left the room I walked s-l-o-w-l-y to the coffee machine, and was standing there when Joel burst into the room. He came over to me and introduced himself, and asked me how good was the coffee? I said it was delicious, and could I give him the envelope I had for him? He said "sure", poured himself some coffee, and sat down at the table with his cabinet, minus one. One chair was empty.

Schools chief’s ‘ivory tower’ high life
Richard Carranza builds himself big new office in DOE headquarters
by Susan Edelman and Selim Algar, NY POST, February 15, 2020
At a Jan. 20 press conference with Mayor de Blasio, Carranza was asked why he walked out of a districtwide Queens meeting where two parents demanded answers about their kids, one a girl viciously beaten by another student in a caught-on-tape cafeteria fight, the other sexually groped in her classroom.
