Wordless Wednesday: The State of Education
This schoolhouse sits in Beacon Falls, Connecticut. It is being used as a flop house though it is generously covered with "no trespassing" signs. Sleeping or finding refuge in this forgotten schoolhouse, despite the prohibitions, is an ironic idea to me because so many of the students with whom I work do exactly that on a daily basis.
I always find myself bemused by these old buildings that are too venerable to knock down, yet undeserving of the attention they need to be preserved properly--like the relative who shows up for every family gathering though nobody seems to remember who they are or how, exactly, they are related.
