April 27, 2012 — Influential School Boss

Time magazine published its annual 100 Most Influential People list in April 2012. Among the movers and shakers is Cami Anderson, the superintendent of Newark schools. Newark Mayor Cory Booker, who appeared on the list last year, called Anderson “a modern day freedom fighter,” adding the following in his bio about Anderson that he penned for the magazine: “Joining with parents and the community, she is determined to end a long local and national nightmare in which too many of our children are casualties of our failure to serve their genius.” To see Time’s list, go to http://www.time.com/time/specials/packages/0,28757,2111975,00.html.
