Wonder what the percentage of NCPD is that lives in NYC.

I, my siblings and the rest of children in our area often walked to school on darn freezing Staten Island mornings; nobody died.

For the record there are places in the United States where "cold" even deep cold weather in winter is not uncommon and kids manage to get to school and back without dropping dead.
Let me guess, you walked up hill both ways, too.

If you truly have "weather triggered asthma" then you must be loaded with compassion to make the statements you do.

As for those other places, you would be surprised how many DO close for weather extremes other than snow. Schools in other areas tend to be newer and better adapted to their local conditions. The same way that all schools in other cities are air conditioned even though it's not always hot, most have parking lots for teachers, and they have proper gyms and sport fields for students. The real issue is how badly school facilities in NYC have been neglected. But it's more satisfying to attack teachers than address that issue, ay Bugsy?!?!?

Face it, you are just a b_ll buster who needs to express his right wing frustration. Stop crying like a little girl and face the facts, Bloomberg is gone and so are his abusive policies.

My dear lady, the NYC school system has been going downhill since the 1980's despite vast spending and giving into the demands of those with vested interests, so spare us your righteous indignation.

We have seen every single educational system fad or trend inflicted upon the NYC school system over the past twenty years and to date change has been negligible. Everyone blamed the former BofE and getting shot of that department was long jog number one for certain persons, then low and behold once that happened nothing really changed. what else? Oh yes, non-zoned schools, more choices, etc... all and sundry ideas and so forth.

It matters not to us if you keep your child indoors for one day or until after Easter, so long as the rest of us aren't asked to stump up for the consequences.
