DETROIT (WWJ) – The heat wave is keeping over a hundred Detroit Public Schools closed.

The district says that the 102 public schools and two adult education buildings will remain closed through the end of the week because of no air conditioning (scroll down for the list). Officials say some summer classes will also be moved to newer, air-conditioned buildings when sites are shared with older schools that do not have air-conditioning.

In Oakland County: Bethune Academy and Pontiac Middle School will be closed Friday in the Ferndale district, all activities are cancelled, with the exception of Summer School classes held at Coolidge Intermediate School which will resume tomorrow as will the Summer Food Program at Coolidge.

    Closing a school for the heat is rediculous. I am from South Carolina and went to school in 95-100F weather with no AC. . We are rasing a generation of Whimps . What are they going to do iwhen they get in the real world. What do kiinds do in Africa or thailand, Vietnam where it is much hotter. I can answer that. They go to school and do not complain. But these little darlings are too fragile . Each generation becomes weaker. God help us if they have to be uncomfortable.
