This is a photo of our school lunch area being closed due to a serious violence occurrence. The school is supposed to be a place where kids should feel safe. When they see things like this it doesn’t give them a feeling of security.
Through Your Lens is a collaboration of The 21st Century School Fund, Critical Exposure, and Healthy Schools Campaign to raise awareness of the need to fund school buildings that support learning and provide a safe, healthy environment for students and teachers.
By sharing photos and stories of what they see every day at school, students and teachers provide us all with an honest window into today’s school buildings.
