Newark NJ Students Call for Local Control of Schools Run by State

Hundreds of Newark, New Jersey, students walked out of classes on Friday to protest policies of the city's top schools official, who was appointed by the state to overhaul the struggling education system. The protests are an effort to wrest control of Newark's schools from Superintendent Cami Anderson, whose appointment has met with bitter opposition from students, parents and teachers unions in New Jersey's largest city.
