    This property is across the street from the school where I teach. What kind of message do my students get when they see that as they enter and exit the building?! It would be bad enough if they were owned by private citizens, but knowing that the city owns them is a real slap in the face to my students.

      I’ll tell you what it says — it says

      “Dear Students, You are not worth the time and trouble we’d have to expend to make this a safe community for you. So instead, we’re going to allow this to remain in poor condition, in the hopes that your parents are too stoned, poor, or stupid to vote us out of office. Sincerely, Your City Government”.

      And that message gets reiterated in just about every neighborhood across Baltimore. For shame!!

        Exactly! My students deserve better than this and it pisses me off that the city thinks so little of them.

        As a parent, it infuriates me as well. No child should have to look at that all day — or walk by the vacants on their way to and from school. They’re havens for crime, people can lurk inside or in between. Why the city allows this is beyond me.
