The Star-Ledger describes circumstances in Newark as the search for a superintendent grows more convoluted and contentious:
The search for a superintendent has been marked with confusion. A community council was convened to interview potential finalists. None of the council members is authorized to speak on the record, but several have said that the interview process has been haphazard.
Committee members were initially told they would be interviewing four candidates. Then three of the candidates dropped out. Three new ones have been added, two of whom have yet to be interviewed, several of the committee members said.
