Sen. John Liu, a Democratic state senator who represents a large Asian population in Queens, helped ensure that the specialized school plan failed in Albany this past summer.

“It’s important to be a chancellor for all school kids,” Mr. Liu said.

Shortly after Mr. Carranza arrived in New York in spring 2018, he and Mayor Bill de Blasio announced a plan to get rid of the admissions exam for eight specialized schools, in an effort to boost the number of black and Hispanic students.

Asian students make up a majority of the schools and would lose about half their seats under the city’s proposal.

Asian-American parents and politicians were not consulted about the plan before it was announced.
