Used to be that schools had NO air conditioners.
.
Be they one room schools all the way to university and college buildings.
.
In human history, having a building with A/C is rather new. A blip on the timeline of human existence.
.
Even sixty years ago, this would not have been a news item.

BFD. Not too long ago the only rooms with AC in public schools were the office and the teachers' lounge. Who are these people complaining anyway?

Seriously. Some kids walk to school barefoot and sit under a banyan tree, and their parents are grateful there's a teacher.

No air conditioning in any school I attended. We had these cool things they called windows.

Most likely the same ones who drive either Janie and or Johnnie to the front door of the school in their Hummers. Then pick them up from the same area after school.

You 100% correct.
We need less coal burned for electricity generation so Global Warming will stop. Once Global Warming stops we won't need as much air conditioning OR electricity. Sooo shut down all coal burning power plants so we can turn off the air conditioning. President Obama, just do it!
So is this the chicken or the egg?

Crews working to contain one of California's largest ever wildfires had help from the blaze itself as they made advances overnight against the flames threatening San Francisco's water supply, several towns near Yosemite National Park, and historic giant sequoias.

so what - most of these thugs are out on the streets and not in the publically funded schools, be happy with what you have and shut it.

the public school system is the biggest waste of tax payer money.

the us is not even in the top 10 of education in the world, it is broke, unions have destroyed what was to be a LEARNING - not a taking.

On August 24th, 1948 the temperature was 98 degrees. What did the school children do then? Was the hot temperatures that week in 1948 the result of global warming?

Hey now don't picking on chosen Liberals living far away. How about Phylls Kahn who lives on park land, in Downtown Mpls, with Chickens in her yard, paying low rent payments, has a BILLION dollar LRT built so her fat arse can have a smooth ride to the legislature.
We don't need to talk about Al Gore to see Government corruption.

This must have been a rough day for anyone who had to sit by a Somali student. They don't wipe, so when the sweat drips down and mixes with the corn in the crack, all hell breaks loose.

To heck with the Students in the Government Schools.

What about the Collectivists with Jobs in Government Schools! Why should Unionista Teachers be forced to work in the same conditions as the Parents who sweat their days away to have the Government use the Force of law to capture 40% of the Parents income for niceties like A?C fro the comfort of the Dependents with Government Jobs.

Where is MEA, AFSCME, SEIU, and all the other Collectivist's Representatives,

END this Hostile Workplace now!
