Setting Bank – Classroom

White, circular lights glower down at the students, beaming blinding light from the ceiling. The chairs and walls had the color vacuumed out, leaving nothing but the white skeletons for children to sit in. Tiles line the floor, leading the way up to the blank technology taking center stage in the bleak room. The only facet of normality left are the books standing on a shelf impossible to reach, reminding children color is not their place. An outdated globe sits next to the teacher’s desktop next to their own stack of bleak, muted textbooks. Children stare ahead at the flickering board as the teacher approaches, sighing when instead of choosing even one of the most basic primary colors, they choose the black pen.
