The worst problem with school for myself and others doesn’t have to do with the tests, the thirty minute early day commute, or even the low quality dinner, it’s the lack of cooling! You would think that being in the deep south my school would be equipped to deal with the hot and humid weather with a multitude of nice air conditioner units, but that sadly isn’t the case! The only source of cooling are a few old and dusty ceiling fans in the classrooms, along with a few breezes of fresh air from an open window if you are lucky, and the only air conditioner idea in the entire school is only in one location, and that location is in the principal’s office.
That’s a bit peculiar I would say, am I right? One day after one of my great pals suffered a heat stroke while in math class, my fellow classmates and I decided that enough was enough.
The next day all of us all walked out of the school and demanded that the school do something about the lack of cooling in the school. The boycott lasted for nearly a week, and eventually all of us got the message that the principal will be stepping down, and they will right away begin to install state of the art air conditioner units in all of the classrooms. It sure was a great feeling to think that all of us were all able to come together to make a change, and it feels even better knowing that our shady former principal paid the full price for being greedy with the air conditioner.
