Air conditioning in every NYC classroom by 2022
At the beginning of March 2017, a report published by New York City Council member Brad Lander showed that one out of every four classrooms in NYC has no air conditioning. This represents almost 11,000 classrooms with no air conditioning in more than 1,000 public schools. Students and teachers also reported that temperatures in uncooled classrooms could reach almost 38°C, disturbing pupils’ concentration. In light of these findings, a campaign was launched to improve learning conditions. At the end of April, the city officially announced a USD 28.75 million initiative to install air conditioners in every NYC classroom over the next five years.
