Baltimore closed its public schools on Thursday after former NFL linebacker turned teacher, Aaron Maybin, revealed how his students tried to learn in 40F classrooms wearing coats as icicles formed on the building’s rafters.

As temperatures plunged across the Northeast ahead of the powerful nor’easter that moved up the east coast, teachers expressed their outrage at Baltimore students being forced to attend schools with no heat, including Maybin.

‘This is what #Baltimore students trying to learn in a 40 degree classroom looks like. Just in case anyone gives a damn…’ Maybin wrote in the caption of a video he shared on Instagram.

Parents and other residents in the community also wondered why the students were made to sit inside their classrooms in close to freezing temperatures.
