M77- SIMPLE SOLUTIONS

NO NEED TO WORRY
Don't worry about air conditioners, there is no power to run them...
Kagman school’s cafeteria, 4 classrooms have no A/Cs. Story Here..
THE 640 students at Kagman Elementary School are feeling the heat — literally. The school needs to replace the air-conditioners in the cafeteria, and the A/Cs in four other classrooms have been down for the past several months now, according to KagES principal Ignacia Demapan.
“One of the major issues here is air-conditioning,” she said. “For cafeteria alone, we need $50,000 to replace the old units and we have no money.”
See how this problem kinda takes care of it's self! No power, No AC repair needed. Simple!

I know air-conditioned classrooms are the "ideal learning atmosphere". But as desperate as they've gotten for more funds, maybe the aircons should go off. Hopwood in the 60's and Marianas High in the 70's didn't have A/C, and students were fine. Didn't know any different. A/C isn't an absolute to learning. A great many of the world's most intelligent people were edumacated in classrooms with A/C.

Now learning materials is a different matter.

Lil, when I was going to Marianas High School in the late 80's, there were only two classes I took that had air-con. Yet we still learned!

It is hot as hell without air conditioners, but how many schools in Africa are air-conditioned? And how many of those students walk miles and miles to attend school?

I honestly believe they should take the air conditioners out of the Legislature and the Governor's Office. If the students can take the heat, so can our leaders...

Of course that will never happen.

Schools nowdays are designed just for AC. No windows or windows that won't open. Maybe a trade wind air cooled school should be designed.
Lots of open spaces and positioned for the wind to draft through the rooms. Oh, I forgot, they then will be exposed to vandalism, can't win here for trying.

The kids are used to it now, not just in school but everywhere, and they're very spoiled by it. The whining is very obnoxious during even the brief outages. The class sizes from what I heard are a lot bigger now than they were back in the day as well. It is frankly hard to keep them on task during optimal conditions. Making it hot in there only adds to the problem.
