Search begins for Newark school superintendent
The search is on for a new superintendent of New Jersey's largest school district.
Marion Bolden announced plans to step down Saturday after serving eight years as Newark's superintendent of schools. Governor Corzine thanked Bolden for her service as he announced the formation of a search committee to find her replacement.
The committee will be chaired by Clement Price, a professor at Rutgers and historian. Bolden says it's important to find the right leader as the city goes through a transition. Corzine called the search one of the most important undertakings in the state.
Bolden will resign at the end of the school year. The search is expected to take at least until March.
