NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- New York City has a new Schools Chancellor to replace Carmen Fariña.

Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Wednesday that Alberto Carvalho -- who has led Miami's public school system for the last decade -- will take over the position.

“Alberto Carvalho is a world-class educator with an unmatched track record of success. I am very confident that our extensive, national search has found New York City the best person to lead the nation’s largest school system into the future. I look forward to welcoming our new chancellor to New York City in the days ahead, and to working with him in the years ahead as we deepen achievement in our classrooms and build on the outstanding record of accomplishment that Chancellor Fariña has delivered for students and their families
across the five boroughs," the mayor said.

Carvalho is a long-time educator with experience running schools for 'vulnerable children.' The New York City outsider is considered a rising star among national educators.
