School year opens with doomsday budget while prison construction continues

The following three images were created to mark the begining of the school year and the state's continued divestment in public education at the same time as millions are being spent on prison construction.  We are asking people to share these images on facebook, tumblr, and twitter.

The photos of the abandoned schools in the first two images were taken by Matthew Christopher. You can find more of his powerful work at his website here:
