In the fall of 2014, a physical education teacher from William Bryant High School found the classroom he was given to be hazardous. He asked Principal Namita Dwarka to change rooms and she denied the requests. He made the decision to move his students to another room and called OSHA. OSHA came in and after an inspection they immediately shut down the room. This did not stop the Principal Dwarka from giving him a disciplinary letter for moving the students without permission. OSHA eventually substantiated the teacher’s allegation.
