@NYCSchools Blanketed With Angry Tweets for Not Declaring a Snow Day

January 22, 2014 | Bucky Turco

A winter-polar-vortex-storm-thing hit the city on Tuesday and although snow was expected to fall until daybreak Wednesday, it tapered off later that evening. So, a little before 11PM, Schools Chancellor Carmen Farina announced that public schools would be open. Soon after, the official Twitter account for New York City Schools reiterated that news. And then it got nasty. Students (and parents and people who it won’t affect either way), apparently weren’t happy with the news, so they tweeted their opposition with varying degrees of disgust and defiance throughout the night and morning.
