    And this is one of the many reasons I moved my entire family to DC. This summer has been beautiful outside – and there is AC in every school 😉

    THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!! You nailed it. As a former public school student who is now a teacher in our public schools, I applaud you for speaking out for us. Enough is enough. How many years must our keiki suffer?

    Aloha Jade, there is a petition that has been going for a little under a week that tries to get at this point of the lack of shame that surrounds this issue. I hope you do not mind if I share it here:

    With this shameful negligence against our children in classrooms, the DOE is spending $3 million in renovating a former school building into an office building for their administrators complete with an upgraded AC system. After saying they did not have the money to put ac units in classrooms. They seem perfectly fine with having kids and teachers go to the hospital with heat stroke and exhaustion and telling “just be patient and wait for us to come up with something while we sit in our cool, $3 million conditioned offices.

    Hear, hear. It is long past time to take care of this problem. I remember the same problem as an elementary, intermediate and high school student, and that was long, long ago. Shut off the Legislature and DOE A/C, now, and watch the ACTION happen!
