(photo by Matt Roth).Friday, May 14, 2010..There is no water flowing through the pipes in the Ms. Arsenia Butal's classroom. Too much lead makes the water dangerous for consumption. The piping cover is also missing. The Eighth grade science teacher also reports that students will sometimes hide underneath the sink and play with the faucets below. ..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.
