Anderson will stay on amid sharp criticism over her ‘One Newark’ plan.

NEWARK - Students, parents and community leaders gathered in Newark today to protest the contract renewal of the city’s embattled school superintendent.

Acting Commissioner of Education David Hespe announced Friday that the contract of Newark Schools Superintendent Cami Anderson has been renewed for three years. She will receive a 1.6 percent annual increase on her base salary of $251,500.
    
New Jersey education officials have moved recently to return some aspects of local control to Newark schools, which have been run by the state since 1995.

Opponents of state control have directed their anger at Anderson and rallied for her ouster after she introduced her “One Newark” plan to overhaul the struggling district.

Protesters called for a moratorium on the plan, which some claim was not fully discussed with the community.
