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.

A rally outside the superintendent’s office is scheduled for Tuesday. Organizers say they plan on handing off their “Newark Promise” idea to Anderson in an effort to open the conversation regarding the future of Newark schools.
