When will city schools be heated properly?

The Baltimore Teachers Union is urging the city to close down all schools until officials get a handle on heating problems that have already closed some buildings and left children shivering in others. (Kim Hairston, Ulysses Muñoz / Baltimore Sun video)

The lack of heat in most Baltimore City schools has made local and national news and rightly so (“Baltimore teachers call on city to close all schools amid heating issues,” Jan 3). Baltimore students deserve heat in their classrooms in the winter. They deserve air conditioning in their classrooms in the summer. How can teachers be expected to teach and students be expected to learn in such conditions?

City students and teachers deserve better, a lot better. The question is, when the headlines fade, will the outrage over the disgraceful state of the facilities of the Baltimore City schools remain? I hope so.
