(photo by Matt Roth).Friday, May 14, 2010..One of the stairwell rails has become unbolted from the wall. There are several more holes lining the school's stairs, marking where rails used to be. ..The building housing the Baltimore Freedom Academy, a grade 6-12 Baltimore public charter school focusing in social justice, was built in 1960. Fifty years later, the school is in disrepair. Old pipes make water from the fountains undrinkable. Asbestos makes repairing/replacing the pipes a hazard. The school has no air conditioning which makes the year-round school unbearable in the summer. The most derelict area is the boys locker room, where students are not allowed.
