In our recent principal survey, 38% of principals said their schools lacked sufficient electrical power, and many commented on the need for more air-conditioning.
18% of principals reported that their schools have classrooms with no windows. Many said that special education classes and services were being given in inadequate spaces, including closets.
Clearly these would lead to unbearable conditions given today’s temperatures.
492 principals completed our survey in full -- representing more than one third of all NYC public school principals. Their schools contain about 350,000 students or 37% of our total public school population.
