BGE Gives Desks To Baltimore City Schools Kids Learning From Home
- Baltimore City schools are slowly allowing different grades back into the classroom.
- But still there are thousands of students learning from home, and BGE would like to make it just a little easier for some of those students. It is partnering with Stanley, Black, and Decker and Open Works to provide 20 desks to five different schools.
- Once a student is comfortable and they have a safe space to work, they're academically more successful.
- It'll give him more structure. It'll allow him to feel like, OK, I'm in school, versus I'm in my room, and I really could turn the TV on.
- Structure get it?
- All of the pieces are cut out of a single sheet of plywood and can be assembled with no tools. It's made so students can put them back together.
- Well that's even innovative. That's fantastic.
- As long as they're staying safe, that's what matters.
