A change is coming to the upper ranks of New York City schools.
Alberto Carvalho, the superintendent of Miami-Dade County Public Schools, will be replacing current Schools Chancellor Carmen Farina, who's retiring.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio issued a statement calling Carvalho "a world-class educator with an unmatched track record of success," adding "he's the best person to lead the nation's largest school system into the future."
Carvalho has served in his current position since 2008. Miami-Dade County Public Schools is the country's fourth largest school system.
Carvalho is expected to make an official announcement at 10:00AM on Thursday Morning.
