PITTSBURGH (AP) — A superintendent who faced questions about information on his resume and possible plagiarism can begin his new job this week after the Pittsburgh Public Schools board rejected one member’s request to rescind the hiring.

The board voted 7-2 against board member Terry Kennedy’s motion to reverse the hiring of Anthony Hamlet. Hamlet begins his $210,000-a-year job on Friday.
