Camden Eyes Residential Public School [VIDEO]

The schools superintendent in Camden plans to open a residential public school for homeless and other high-risk children as part of his plan to improve education in a city that ranks among the nation’s poorest.

Paymon Rouhanifard included the concept in the strategic plan he made public Monday.

The superintendent was appointed by Gov. Chris Christie to run the struggling district in August, months after the state government took control of the schools. Rouhanifard says he hopes to be able to raise money for boarding-school facilities if the state government would agree to pay for the operating costs.

His plan includes having police and community group patrols to provide safe walking routes to all schools by the start of the next academic year in September.
