Baltimore City teachers have placed an important item on their back to school wish list: Portable fans.
And they’re asking the public to help pay for them. At last check, there were close to 60 Baltimore City school buildings without air conditioning. That alone was enough reason for the teacher’s union to take matters into its own hands.
Anticipating a repeat of last year when hot temperatures forced the city to close schools, the Baltimore Teachers’ Union is turning to a cool solution. The goal is to pick up at least 500 fans. It’s a drive that began late last week. Teachers said the help can’t come soon enough.
