Transcript of Detroit Schools

inn22 said:
When a school district loses funding or the number of students drops to a point in that the area schools are consolidated to save money. Depending on how the district was reorganized they probably thought it better just to cut thier efforts and just leave things there and start over. Essential items were removed, but things such as computers were probably out-dated when the schoold closed. The walls are all torn up beacuse people come in and take the copper pipes and other valuable metals. 2 months ago Joshua Schools:

Re: Abandoned and Destroyed Elementary School in Detroit
Hiya, Jesse....

Very neat, I'm glad my video's going around! :)

I did not end up finding any background information on the school...I tried researching it but couldn't find much via the internet. I'm sure if I actually went to Detroit records/census things I could probably find out more information by just talking to the right people but unfortunately I don't know much! You should definitely check that school out yourself some time...I wasn't exactly looking for it myself...I was driving by and saw it there...you're right it's very noticeable. The playground equipment was torched so the first thing I noticed was the old melted plastic of the slides and swings.

Ha, thanks, but I'm not a film major :) I'm an anthropology major.

Let me know how your presentation goes!
