Robert Gregory rises through the school ranks as Newark regains local control
A teacher favorite? The Newark Teachers Union is no small player in the discussion, and its president John Abeigon said it is withholding judgment for now on the search process and any potential candidates.
“We’ll work with whoever they select,” Abeigon said yesterday. “[Gregory] is a good selection as an interim, and the next few months we’ll see how he does in the position. He is a former classroom teacher so he should know where to go to find the right answers.”
