I am So Old I Remember Having No air conditioning system at School

I live in the south, plus there is no doubt that one of the things I count on every day is my air conditioning system… When I was a kid, I lived even further south, where the weather was even hotter, plus I highly doubt there is anyone alive down there who does not have air conditioning system in their home.

Back in the day, but, I can remember going to school plus not having any air conditioning system.

True, the people I was with and I did not have school while I was in the Summer months, however even so, it was just plain hot plus muggy inside those classrooms with no air conditioning system. Most classrooms did have windows that opened, which is no longer the case, plus the people I was with and I did open them, however classrooms also used ceiling fans, again, most public schools today do not have ceiling fans, plus they actually never even consider opening their windows. I can’t imagine any parents even putting up with a school that did not have acceptable air conditioning system. If a public school tried to operate with a high quality, operable Heating plus Air Conditioning system, the parents would be down there complaining at the PTA meetings plus in the office of the school board every day, and some may even choose not to send their kids to school even if the air conditioning system was just under repair. This week’s kids are particularly more spoiled than the people I was with and I were as children, however I totally understand the reason why. AS an adult, I had to teach one whole semester with no Heating plus Air Conditioning laboring in the building where my classroom was housed. I had surgery that summer, plus I was still reclaiming when school started back. It was very terrible for my health living without that air conditioning system, plus I hope to never do it again.
