Description

A WPIX-TV investigation reveals that the New York City Board of Education wastes "hundreds of thousands of dollars" on keeping its main administration building lit and air-conditioned 24-hours a day, 365 days a year. The Board of Education "has publicly declared itself unable to operate under City budget restrictions", but WPIX-TV found it could save money simply by "flicking a switch."
