NEWARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — A group of Newark students continues to sit in at the school district’s offices and say they will stay until the superintendent meets with them or resigns.
Members of the Newark Student Union entered school district’s Public Schools Advisory Board meeting Tuesday night. Around 8:30 p.m. they ascended to the eighth floor where Superintendent Cami Anderson and other administrators have offices.
The group has remained there since.
“We’re reclaiming territory that has been taken from us,” Kristin Towkaniuk, president of the Newark Student Union, told 1010 WINS on Wednesday. “We’re reclaiming this because the superintendent has taken so much away from us and this is our space.”
