Newark Superintendent Update

The search for a new superintendent for Newark is in its final stages as the pool has been winnowed down to two candidates: Cami Anderson, a NYC schools superintendent for alternative schools and Maria Goodloe-Johnson, a former superintendent for Seattle Public Schools. According to the Star-Ledger, Acting Comm. Chris Cerf said the politics that have infused the selection process led to a loss of at least one promising candidate, Jean Claude Brizard, who "just gave up."
