After photos circulated widely on social media this week of Baltimore schoolchildren huddled in coats in cold schools, a college student started a fundraising campaign that has far exceeded its goal and the district is making emergency repairs.
Among those posting this week about the problem of inadequately-heated schools was former NFL player Aaron Maybin, a Baltimore native who now works at a city elementary school.
“This.Is.Unacceptable,” Maybin wrote on in a tweet with a video of young children at a school. “It’s really ridiculous the kind of environment we place our children into and expect them to get an education. I got two classes in one room, kids are freezing, Lights are off. No computers. We’re doing our best but our kids don’t deserve this.”
