This is horrible!! One of my schools is not air conditioned. Only recently
(in the past 3 years) have schools in my district started to get a/c. They
are not even putting a/c in new construction or renovation. It is the most
ridiculous thing!!! Also to expect anyone, teachers or students to be able to
concentrate and work when they are uncomfortable is also crazy! As for the two
more weeks, we have 2 more weeks as well...pretty much...2 weeks of doing
nothing...but pretending like you are doing something! The kids have checked out!
At this point, I am either for school year around or....a decent summer
break! But make a choice!
