The school district has received widespread criticism for the frigid temperatures in their classrooms. Photos of children in huddled in coats and gloves in Baltimore schools have been widely shared on social media.

An online campaign has raised more than $80,000 for teachers to get heaters for their classrooms.

Parents vented their frustrations at a school board meeting that was held at the Baltimore City Public Schools headquarters last week.
