A muslim woman leaves the community center in the Brabrand area of Århus, Denmark, at the end of a meeting over the closing of Nordårdskolen in the Gellerupparken housing community. The elementary school is being targeted for closure because of a lack of funding in the municipality. The school is made up of children of immigrants and foreigners living in Denmark's largest ghetto, where residents are criticized for not integrating into Danish society.

John Tully, a senior photojournalism major at MU, attended the Danish School of Journalism on a one semester exchange program through the Missouri School of Journalism. He took this photo for a project about this particular housing community. He attended the Danish School of Journalism from January through June 2007.
