Why School Furniture Is So Important?
Just think back to all the changes to schools we’ve had in the last decade or two – teaching styles have been completely revamped, even the curriculum itself has been renovated. But has anything been done about the furniture?
School furniture is pretty much the same as it was back in the ‘50s, with the only major change being made in the construction materials: they’re now made from plastic instead of wood.
Classroom furniture can affect a child’s educational performance in a number of different manners. This makes it of crucial importance that we ensure that we give the very best furniture to our children.
Children should have furniture which is both ergonomic and comfortable. If the furniture in the class doesn’t fit the kids well, it can cause back and neck pain that could eventually end up doing permanent damage. A lack of comfort also makes it hard to concentrate, thus directly having a negative impact on education.
