When Mark Zuckerberg announced in front of a cheering Oprah audience his $100 million pledge to transform the Newark Schools--and to solve the education crisis in every city in America--it looked like a huge win for then-mayor Cory Booker and governor Chris Christie. But their plans soon ran into a constituency not so easily moved--Newark's key education players, fiercely protective of their billion-dollar-per-annum system. It's a prize that, for generations, has enriched seemingly everyone, except Newark's students.

I look forward to reading this [haven't even skimmed it yet] but the Library Journal states: // Key ingredients were missing. Teachers, parents, and students were not included in the planning \\ - - some other key ingredients missing: expertise. Zuckerberg's expertise was . . .? Christie's was obvious: he was the lobbyist who made sure that securities fraud was excluded from the NJ state crimes legislation. Obviously there were a whole bunch of missing ingredients.
