Letters: It's too hot for school

Re "Back to the books," front-page photo, Aug. 15

Having Los Angeles Unified School District students return to the classroom weeks before the traditional Labor Day start is a disaster. My San Fernando Valley classroom was 92 degrees at 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday. Add 40-plus students, and the best my usually excellent air conditioner could do was the low 80s.

A good learning environment involves more than teachers and students. The L.A. Board of Education should realize that June gloom is much more student-friendly than sweltering August.
