She later was appointed superintendent of the state-run Newark, N.J., schools.

Ms. Hall’s work in Atlanta has earned her praise for raising student achievement, lowering student absenteeism, and improving teacher training and school leadership. All the district’s elementary schools made adequate yearly progress in 2006-07. ("Atlanta's Own 'Hall' Of Famer," Nov. 12, 2008.)
