These two photographs display contrasts in the appearance of two primary schools in Glasgow city. Both schools are state funded and come under the auspices of the same local authority, but one is located in a more affluent area, the other in a more deprived area. Lower self esteem and aspirations for the future have been observed among residents of the more deprived area compared with the more affluent area. Could the physical appearance of schools be partly associated with this?
