Gov. Jon Corzine introduces Clifford Janey as Newark’s next schools superintendent
It’s official, ex-Washington D.C. school superintendent will run the $1 billion Newark public school operation.
“I believe in high performing schools that have universal access to individuals, families and communities” he said. “I believe in teaching and learning environments that are safe and enabling. I believe in results that are based on proven practices, not gimmicks. I believe in working with engaged communities.”
Janey was introduced during an afternoon press conference at the nearly completed new Central High School building. State Education Commissioner Lucille Davy, outgoing Superintendent Marion Bolden, Mayor Cory Booker and other state and local officials attended the event.
