Children are facing educational mandates that have changed the pressures on our youth. As a result we need to remember we are asking the youth of today to tackle these pressures and perform to targets that we set for them. How can we ask this of them and then stick them in rooms through May, June, September and parts of October where the heat is often oppressive? Most classrooms today do not have air conditioning and windows often only open slightly for safety measures. Children are often asked to attend summer educational programs in these very classrooms that are oppressive during the regular school year. We would never ask an adult to sit for 8 hours a day and expect quality performance from them in rooms that can reach 90° or more. Air conditioning is affordable and easily installed in this day and age. We need to provide the environment that these children need to produce with the pressures we are putting on them. And let’s not forget that we increase those pressures and targets daily.
