Christian School Used Children To Clear Dangerous Asbestos – Without Protective Gear (VIDEO)

A Christian school in Ohio is under criminal investigation for one cost-cutting measure; a measure which could cut some students’ lives painfully short.

The students, some as young as 13, participated in a volunteer project which involved gutting an old YWCA in preparation for the building becoming the new site of their school, the Buckeye Education School in Berea, OH. The project took place over several weekends and the walls of the YWCA were filled with the deadly substance, asbestos. The students wore no protective gear.

Ohio and federal law requires that school and public building asbestos abatement is performed by trained and accredited personnel.

A neighbor to the YWCA, and an asbestos abatement professional, Darren Clink, shot a video of the students as they removed asbestos filled debris with buckets and a front-end loader. From WKYC:

“The entire site was contaminated with asbestos and the people who were doing it were all children,” said Clink. “The kids were loaded with it.”

1. Cheap labor. That's the problem with anything that values belief too highly, exploitation is so easy

4. Wow! I cannot help but wonder why the guy that was taping did not try to warn them.

Just weird reactions all the way around from the no response from the kids and the no comment from the Principle. I expect that the kids might have been told not to comment. Sad all the way around.

6. Private property, private school, freedom of religion, what do you think?

I'll bet all those folks would love to see a government agency show up, don't you?

10. You just have to love those good old Christian values!

The only value that that school holds dear, is the value of the almighty dollar. Save a buck by exposing a child to asbestos cancer!

They broke the law. They need to be sent to jail!

11. They were armored by their love of the LORD!

 

Or perhaps this jerk had the same world view as Mother Therisa -- that suffering was a blessing.

Besides, all that asbestos stuff is based on science...and that's a lot of bunk. Right?

15. Suffer the little children

If I found out that my child were being subjected to this kind of hazardous slave labor, I would sue the organization into oblivion.
