The new plan to reform Newark public schools is being vigorously opposed by the city’s teachers union. One aspect of the plan is to have traditional public schools share buildings with charter schools. According to the plan, Camden Middle School would be among those targeted for both consolidation and co-location. New schools superintendent Cami Anderson said the plan is designed to give parents more choices while saving the district four million dollars.
