From the Sun-Times:
“The kids are miserable. They don’t have energy. They’re just slumped over on their desks,” said Penn principal Sherryl Moore-Ollie. “When it’s 70 out, it’s not bad, but once it reaches 85, this old building heats up and becomes unbearable.”

Many students were preparing to take the ISAT this week, including 53 Penn students who take the test today. Several Penn students were sent home this week suffering from physical symptoms of heat exhaustion.
Parent LaShawn Martin had to pick up her 9-year-old, Anton Green, Tuesday, because he was lethargic and began vomiting. “Chicago Public Schools is putting these kids into very dangerous situations,” complained Martin.
