Default Seriously Cami Anderson on The Time 100 most influential People List

What has Ms. Anderson done that Ms. Bolden and Dr. Chaney didn't do that deserves her to be on this list other than Booker recommending her?

Your comments: Newark schools boss Cami Anderson named to Time's 100 Most Influential People list

By NJ.com Staff The Star-Ledger


Star-Ledger file photoNewark Public Schools Superintendent Cami Anderson said an important factor in boosting educational achievement in spite of poverty is strong school leadership.
Newark Schools Superintendent Cami Anderson is on Time magazine's list of 100 Most Influential People in the World because of her commitment to turn around the city's struggling schools. The list was released today. Newark Mayor Cory Booker penned Anderson’s bio for the listing and praised her as a “modern day freedom fighter” who has redefined expectations for children who had been incarcerated or pregnant or who had “dropped out, aged out or flunked out.”

NJ.com users are discussing Anderson's inclusion on the list.

We posted at the same time

She hasn't done anything more than any other urban superintendent. Some have been a t for years and have actual accomplishments to their name. Anderson just works for Booker and they have to jam him into the list somehow. Note they didn't mention she can't go out in Newark without police escorts, that is how much the City loves her and her plans!

Default And the answer is...

carry on the ultra right wing conservative agenda to dismantle public education.Close schools turn space over to failing charter schools,fire employees who dare oppose her.In new york she lowered the drop out rate by putting students in a fake GED class then did not allow them to take the test,when they exceeded the age requirement removed them from the list.This was documented by principals in her district 59.remember Beverly hall,Cami will go that route ,just sooner.

That's the last I've heard. I know some of the school closing meetings got pretty dicey.

Time 100 Cami Anderson Video: http://www.time.com/time/video/playe...112247,00.html



So, according to the Devils owner himself, Cory once called Vanderbeek a "straight shooter" and a "lifelong friend." Apparently, for Vanderbeek, not so much today. Now Booker effuses that Cami Anderson is a "modern day freedom fighter." For crying out loud!

Cory, please take it easy on the rhetoric. It's great that you support Christie's top-down pick. Most of us hope, I'm sure, that finally the state might get it right after over a decade and a half of controlling Newark's schools. But a "modern day freedom fighter"? That's what Ms Anderson is? Really?

Meanwhile, Booker cannot live in Newark without police escorts including those posted at his house.

Time has been reduced to little more than an upscale version of People magazine.

Look, if Booker says that Cami fought for the freedom of Newark school children it must be true. Right? Time Magazine believes it because Cory told them so. Next Cami will be on the Nobel Peace Prize committee's short list for the next award.

After all of these years, this is what I thought were freedom fighters:



The Murders of James Chaney, Andrew Goodman & Michael Schwerne
