The confusion over what GothamSchools is, most of it outrageously inflating our place in the world, never ceases to flatter me. We regularly receive questions from parents about how to get their children into a school, and we have received several requests to be put in touch with government officials.
Here is a recent example, name and organization redacted to protect the innocent:
Hi Ms. Green,
The [redacted], is holding a Symposium on the arts on Friday, September 25, 2009 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City and wants to invite the Dr. David Steiner. Please let me know his mailing address.
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
I do know Steiner, the newly appointed state education commissioner who won’t start officially until October. I have interviewed him several times, and even once sat next to him at a delicious seafood dinner in Manhattan. However, I don’t have his mailing address on hand. If you do, let me know, and I’ll send it along to the reader.
