Newark Schools Reform Plan
NEWARK - Students, teachers and teacher’s union officials called for Newark School Superintendent Cami Anderson to resign during a rally at Lincoln Park Saturday.
Critics of Anderson say they were left out of the conversation when she pitched her “One Newark” plan, which restructures and consolidates the school district.
They pitched their own plan during the rally called “The Newark Promise,” which includes a focus on improving curriculum and funds to improve school buildings.
