Sarah Thompson, a member of EMA, said about the Lights Off event: “It was supposed to be a special day where all the teachers turned off the lights to help save energy”.
Why did EMA decided to do this?
“Because our school uses so much energy and the lights are the biggest problem and we don’t all need them on because most classrooms have windows.”
Why do you think teachers didn’t turn off the lights?
“Well it seemed like we had a lot of substitutes on Friday and I guess the teachers needed the lights to teach.”
Do you think it was fair that a lot of teachers left on their lights?
“I can understand why teachers wouldn’t want to turn off their lights because they have a class to teach, but it was only one day they could have turned them off for even 5 minutes.”
I asked students, “What did you expect the event Lights Off to be like? Did you expect teachers to turn off their lights?"
“I expected that some of the teachers to but not all,” said freshman Ethan McTague.
