Legislation regulating temperatures in schools passed by NYSUT

The NYSUT has declared that the legislation to regulate temperatures in schools has been passed.

WRGB reports that legislation to regulate temperatures in schools has been passed by NYSUT.

Albany is taking action to address the crisis in classrooms. The New York State United Teachers union has recently declared that a state legislation has been approved by both the legislative chambers. This legislation sets a cap on the maximum temperature permitted inside school buildings and indoor facilities.

Last month, we covered the initiatives taken by the NYSUT union and lawmakers to draw attention towards the problem of extreme heat in schools. To make their point, lawmakers even sat in a sauna and took a quiz. As a result, signs were put up displaying classrooms in districts like Schenectady and Shenendehowa that had temperatures reaching up to 100 degrees.
