I am absolutely livid at the entire state of our local schools. I know that times are tough, and cutbacks are honestly hitting everyone particularly taxing this year, but this is getting ridiculous. If the two of us cannot continue to provide our young students with the familiar tools to get an education there, the two of us will end up with a nation of idiots! You don’t have to support your local schools just because you personally have teenagers there, because schools and education truly affects the entire society. First of all, there are so many classes using aged textbooks for reading. They just can’t afford new ones, which are too fancy. Even worse, some of the old classrooms don’t have any cooling unit in them. That may sound savor a luxury, because of course cool airnis not a human right, but this is different. Some of these portable classrooms they have are located in trailers outside the school, and they have no cooling units in them at all. Last week it was over 90 degrees outside, and I know in some of those un-air conditioned trailers the temperature was much higher than 90 degrees, keeping teenagers locked in sweltering overly moderate rooms all day long with no cooling is downright dangerous to their continued health! Inside the main school they have central cooling available but the system is actually aged and doesn’t labor well. At least those lucky teenagers have some form of cooling, however sporadic, but the teenagers in the nasty old trailers are stuck in hot-boxes all day! Not only can these poor teenagers not focus on education, but without any climate control they truly are also putting their health at risk just by going to class.
