Another classroom Collapse

An advice to our students: "Instead of paying attension to your teacher you need to watch out the ceiling so it might collpase on your head."

This is the second time Amman Voice post a classroom ceiling collapse in Jordan. Many public schools need major renovations especially the rented old rusted buildings. A survey need to be made for the existing conditions of the public schools in Jordan and create a plan for renovating or evacuating those buildings.

Moreover, we need to create new codes for school building types and insure it's sustainability so our kids can get the best education in the best healthy environment.
