no school left behind?
i snapped this photo on my cell phone during last night's bike ride. joy middle school caught my attention because of its striking similarity to cooper elementary. the neighbors weren't keen to chat with a snoopy cyclist so i googled into an explanation:
"the school was one of many closed by detroit public schools last year. it appears no one moved or secured anything in the school after it closed, leaving it open for vandals to have their pick of everything from supplies to students' records to the infrastructure of the building itself" (r.h. boone, detroit free press, march 23, 2008).
