My School Didn

When I was in grade K-6 we didn't have A/C in our school. You opened the windows as far as you could. 7-8 we did. 9 we did but in most of the 10th year the school had just a few parts of the building that did and the rest didn't. 11-12 we did. We learned to put up with the heat.

Yep. My high school didn't have an olympic swimming pool either. If you needed to use the districs pool at the other high school, you got on the 10am bus. Now, they ALL MUST have a money sucking olympic pool!

I work in an elementary school in Western New York. You would not believe some of the items that NY state now mandates for schools. In the school that I work at air conditioning (just put in last year) is in the library, computer room, offices and health office. The copy room is also has AC just the keep the computer data rack from burning up. Before we had AC ,the computer room would be over 75 degrees in the winter (25 degrees outside) with all windows open. 30 computers and 30 students throw a lot of heat. No classrooms have AC. We did have an air machine (I guess it purified the air) for one student with a disability. Times have changed. My summer cleaners are students and they cannot use a vacuum cleaner in the school because they are not 18? Mike

The school that I went to was suppose during building to have a pool under the gym floor. The money we were told was not there so it was not put in. That was 1975-76.

I never had a/c all through K-12. We just learned to deal with it. If it was 85 degrees or hoter in the school, we were allowed to take off our ties and unbutton our top botton. It was hard taking a test when sweat is dripping on the paper.

My brother who is 10 years older than I has often told the story of the substitute teacher who would not allow he or his classmates to feed the wood stove to keep the fire going. It was winter with snow on the ground and the class room became very cold, the kids were wearing their coats etc. in an effort to keep warm. This was shortly before WW2 and probably all of these kids had wood stoves in their home and would have gotten a good kick in the behind if they allowed the fire to go out at home.

Where I went to school, Sparta, Il., in the 40s & 50s we had no AC buses or classrooms. However we did not start to school until after Labor Day. Now schools are starting in mid August. Now they appparently have to start earlier to allow for all the teacher institutes, snow days, week long spring vacations, etc.

Sorry to upset you Bigdon. What wrong with this thread? Is it giving you a flash from the past? Is it making you cry because you din't go to school or ride on a school bus like all other normal kids? Sorry you had such a POOR CHILDHOOD.
