Rise & Shine: NYC parent leaders receive new assurance about Carranza’s future

Happy Friday!

Some parent leaders were concerned Thursday morning about chatter that Chancellor Carranza may resign. But when they asked a top deputy, she "emphatically stated" it's not true. The concern comes as Carranza has launched a contentious debate about racism and fairness in the nation's largest school system.

Also in today's roundup, some Democratic presidential contenders are endorsing a proposal to fund school integration efforts across the country.
