NEWARK – Hundreds of city teachers who had been languishing without assignments have been placed back into classrooms as school officials continue to explore way to close a significant budget deficit.


Newark Teachers Union President John Abeigon characterized Cerf’s presentation as misleading, and said “dozens” of aides and clerks faced layoffs while the higher-ranking employees many view as responsible for the deficit remain unscathed.

“The only people who it doesn’t apply to is people who are guilty for the fiasco down there,” he said. “The numbers make it sound as though its peachy keen. The boots on the ground say otherwise.”
