FILE - In this May 4, 2011 file photo, Cami Anderson gestures while talking to the media after being named chief of the state-run Newark Public School system in Newark, N.J. More than three years after Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg committed $100 million toward remaking Newark’s struggling schools, the district is engulfed in a dispute over proposed large-scale teacher layoffs that is threatening to derail wider reform efforts. Nearly half the money has been invested in a 2012 teacher contract that was hailed by Republican Gov. Chris Christie and the nation’s top teacher’s union official as an example of adversaries joining forces to rebuild a struggling urban school district. But the implementation of the contract, including a dispute over emphasizing teacher performance in determining layoffs, has devolved into a bitter fight between Anderson and teachers unions over the future of New Jersey’s largest school district.
