  • I agree with this post, ever since the former Mayor removed preschool it’s been an issue. Kids should be able to learn at the age where they become more active in the process. There’s a certain age in which kids learn the most, allowing them to learn early helps them strive and be prepared for the future.

  • This is a great idea, since Dr.Breke already has been wanting to take care of this issue. You guys can work with the people who already been involved. Hopefully this happens soon, it’s a great and amazing idea that can change BOYCP for the better.

  • I agree with this idea, I honestly think that this will be good for students. Yet, is it for all Cps or high school students? Anyways this can work and have a positive impact on the students as a whole.

    • This is definitely a great idea. BOYCP does seem to use a lot of electricity due to it being a large school, but also for the amount of time it stays open. From morning to evening, thatś alot of energy being used that could be renewable. However, in the winter time itś going to be hard to find sunlight to grasp onto for energy. If there would be a way to change that then this would be the next big step to influencing a healthy environment!

    • Just read your post and just want to let you know that the idea you came up with is amazing. the entirety of the school uses up way too much energy and using solar panels to reduce that would be cool !

  • Hi I’m a student at Back of the Yards College in Chicago I honestly really liked your idea. Since a lot of people use social media it’s better to get people to follow it. Yet I think your idea should’ve been more promoted, even though it wasn’t successful there’s things that can still be done. It’s not too late to actually take action and promote…Read More
