British Asshat Principal Cuts Off Heat In Classrooms During Cold Snap Telling Kids To Sacrifice To Save Planet
- Post 07 December 2011
The Blaze -- Some activists take their causes to the extreme.
Case in point: A principal at Ansford Academy (pictured above with students) in Castle Cary, England decided that the best way to teach students how to lower their “carbon footprint” and save the planet would be to simply turn off the classroom radiators…while temperatures dipped to a not-so-balmy 34°F outside.
Needless to say some faculty and parents — whose children were shivering in gloves, coats and boots and who could barely even grip their pencils — blasted Head Teacher Robert Benzie’s “barbaric” idea.
One teacher calling it “beyond stupid” and “absolutely ridiculous.”
The Sun adds:
“I’ve never worked in such cold. I’m all for saving the planet but this was barbaric.
“Nobody could work properly and kids could not even grip a pen through their gloves.” The mum of a 12-year-old at Ansford Academy in Castle Cary, Somerset, said: “She was shaking when she came home. I was absolutely furious.”
A dad added: “Turning the heating off in December is just mental.
“I can’t believe the kids learnt anything. I’m very angry with the school.”
