BGE Gives Desks To Baltimore City Schools Kids Learning From Home

Video Transcript

- 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?

- Yes.

- 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.
