NEWARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Newark’s mayor and many parents are upset over the city’s state-controlled school enrollment program.
School starts in two weeks, but Melissa McLean said she has no idea where her sons are going to class.
“It’s frustrating,” she told CBS 2’s Weijia Jiang. “It’s aggravating. Instead of making it easier, it’s more complicated.”
And neither do hundreds of other parents in Newark who waited in line for hours to register their children for school.
