Nearly two dozen public schools in Baltimore will close early Tuesday, citing temperatures reaching upwards of 90 degrees as the reason.
"The schools listed below will close or have early dismissal on extremely hot days, or that feel warmer due to a combination of heat and humidity. Schools not listed below have air-conditioning (but may dismiss early, if their systems require repair that cannot be completed within one day)," Baltimore City Public Schools released in a statement Tuesday morning, listing dozens of schools that will be closed.
Due to the forecasted high temperatures on Tuesday, May 31, schools without air conditioning will have early release at 12 p.m. For a list of schools without air conditioning, visit https://t.co/XQJ4hqzqaY— Baltimore City Public Schools (@BaltCitySchools) May 30, 2022
Given the amount of money Baltimore schools receive each year, in addition to federal Wuhan coronavirus "relief" money to bolster school building infrastructure, why don't they have air conditioning?

21 schools in Baltimore close early today due to not having air conditioning. However, there is an “Office of Equity” where a 3 person staff makes $235k to do a “2-day Intro to Racial Equity Seminar” to fight “white silence”.— Kimberly Klacik (@kimKBaltimore) May 31, 2022
