Plea for help from Patterson High [Letter]

As a senior at Patterson High School, I congratulate interim city schools CEO Tisha Edwards for the good work she is doing for the Baltimore City schools. She may have heard of Patterson because we have had many problems. Students here believe we can do better, however, but we need her help.

Every day in my third-period class I have to wear two jackets because it is too cold in the room. It is 52 degrees in the morning and it slowly rises to 62 after classes begin. The cold temperatures decrease student attendance. Recently I walked into class with two jackets on but my hands and toes were so freezing I couldn't take notes on what the teacher was saying.

I ask Ms. Edwards' help because she may be the only one who can solve this problem for us.

Tresor Echa, Baltimore
