Acting commissioner Chris Cerf extends olive branch, willing to discuss “orderly transition”
By John Mooney

It took an extra week, but Newark’s school board last night finally met and voted unanimously to formally contest the state’s ongoing control of its schools.

Yet almost at the same time, New Jersey’s acting education commissioner, Chris Cerf, extended an olive branch and said in an interview that he would be willing to sit with the board to discuss the ongoing tensions and the ultimate possibility of what he called an “orderly transition.”

Bottom line: stay tuned.
