Snow Job

It’s only August, and Chicago teachers are already asking for a “snow day.” Apparently it’s too hot to do their work. Perhaps someone should have thought of this before sending the kids back to school in the thick of summer into un-air-conditioned buildings. No one thought of the fact that it gets hot in August. Remember when Labor Day marked the start of school?

I’d be OK with giving the teachers a snow day if they would give back one of their many “in-service” days during the school year. Or maybe we should just pass the hat and install air conditioners.
