Hello, 

My name is Julian J. Ramos and I'm currently a junior attending Paul VI High School. Only if you have been secluded from all sources of media you should know that Global warming is a current problem that has been culminating since the beginning of humans emitting harmful gasses into our atmosphere. In correlation to humans dumping masses amounts of greenhouse gases we are inadvertently warming our earth to record breaking temperatures. I petition that we shouldn't wait until the end of the school year to have the opportunity to wear summer uniform. We should be able to learn in a comfortable environment so we are able to pay attention and grasp what is being taught to us. Instead we are sidetracked by the temperature, and are not able to excel because we have this hindrance lingering above us. In 1966 when Paul VI High School was founded, on March 9 it was a high of 43 degrees Fahrenheit, and on March 9th of 2020 we have a high of 73 degrees Fahrenheit. An entire 40 degree difference yet we are still mandated to wear a thick heavy blazer and a button down for men, and highly uncomfortable leggings and itchy sweaters for women. It was proven by a group of highly educated individuals when they wrote a paper on, "Heat and Learning" by Harvard Kennedy School that heat is in clear coordination of learning and test scores. In the paper they wrote,"...1°F hotter school year prior to the exam lowers scores by 0.002 standard deviations..." now if you add that March 9th isn't the only day that was hotter than the year our intuition was founded that is a big deviation. I Julian J. Ramos along side many Paul VI students and some faculty acknowledge that it is extremely hot in this building and I propose and petition that we shouldn't have to suffer for so long and should be allowed to wear summer uniform.

Thank you.

Yours truly Mos.
