Description

The Paterson Public Schools, a state-operated, inner city school district in Northern New Jersey, opened five schools illegally in September 2002. The buildings had faulty fire alarms, missing fire escapes and other safety hazards. For these reasons, they had failed safety inspections. The investigation led to the firing of the head of the district's facilities department and a complete restructuring of the department.
