This is one of our pillars in the cafeteria. The hole is about size of a hand, fingers spread. It goes in about 5 inches in. It’s been there for as long as I can remember, and each year the size grows for the lack of maintenance. The tile is falling apart around it, causing the pillar to not be very stable. The pillars which hold this school together are falling, how long will it be until the school falls too?  

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.

The contest deadline for submitting photos is today, March 7, 2011. Submit your photo here!
