Newark’s Outreach Effort Appears To Have Been A Sham

For the past several months, I have been sharing my skepticism about the extremely expensive (and, in my opinion, useless) effort undertaken in Newark to go door-to-door to ask residents what they think should be done about the schools. It was paid for by part of the $100 million donation by Facebook’s founder.

Today, New Jersey newspapers report that — surprise, surprise — the school district already had a plan in place they were, and are, going to implement. And it doesn’t look pretty. Read: Broken promises: Newark school plan kept many in the dark.

Thanks to Kenneth Libby for the tip.
