BED-STUY - New York City School Chancellor Cathie Black started the first day in her new position by taking a tour of schools throughout the five boroughs today.

While stopping in Brooklyn, Chancellor Black held a meet-and-greet at P.S. 262 in Bedford-Stuyvesant.

Black sat in on a fourth-grade writing class and a reading class with fifth-graders, assessing and listening to teachers, who she said are the key ingredient to improving student test scores.
