Most children in the Baltimore area school territories expected to return from their vacation interrupts refreshed and revitalized to begin the new time off on a high mention. Regrettably, that’s not exactly how things went down.
When children across Baltimore City returned to school this past week, they were met with below freezing classrooms that induced for less than ideal hear rooms. During the first 2 day back from infringe, nearly one-third of the district’s buildings expected some kind of maintenance to their heating and water pipe structures. But with millions of kids left to shiver their space through the school day, metropoli officials did the bare minimum when it came to their students’ security, something parents and teaches aren’t too fond of.
The Baltimore Teachers Union has invested the last few days desperately trying to persuade the city to shut down all schools until officers could get a better manage on the severity of heating problems within the schools. But rather than closing down all the school buildings, on Wednesday, merely four schools were closed while two others were given early expulsions because of the heating issues.
ICYMI: The following academies/ programs are CLOSED for students on Wed ., Jan. 3: Calverton EMS, KIPP Harmony, Lakeland EMS,& Elem/ Middle Alternative Program.( Staff should report to PDC at 2500 E. Northern Parkway .)

I don’t understand how Baltimore City academies can operate on different levels, with no heat. The temperature is still in teens. What the hell is going on?

Today, on one of the coldest periods this wintertime, several Baltimore City Public Schools forced students to go to academies with no heat, bursted water pipe, and cold lunches.
This has been a problem since I was in academy. BCPS, wake up! Our students are not captives, they’re GOLD.
