New York City Schools Chancellor David C. Banks has joined the NYC Charter Center’s Board of Directors.
Previously a key member of the Charter Center’s District-Charter Collaborative – an initiative that facilitates collaboration between district and charter schools – as well as founding the Eagle Academy for Young Men charter school, Banks has several years of experience directly working with charters.
“It is essential that all of our students have access to the very best our public school system has to offer,” said Banks. “Identifying and showcasing the amazing things that are happening in all our schools is one of my top priorities as Chancellor. I am looking forward to working with the Board to strengthen how we identify, share, and scale best practices being incubated in both district and charter schools.”
