Newark Schools Chief Anderson to Stay on After Mayor’s Race

Cami Anderson, superintendent of schools in struggling Newark, New Jersey, said she plans to stay on amid opposition from the mayor-elect and community activists over her plan to remake the city’s schools.

Anderson, 42, said she’s received an “intent to renew” notice for the state-appointed position. Her plan, dubbed One Newark, calls for closing some of the city’s 71 public schools and cutting 1,000 teachers during the next three years.
