Attitudes really do need to change


Throughout hundreds of secondary schools in the UK, students go to the same rooms every day to learn, sit in the same place, often next to the same people. Even when changing subject lessons, different classrooms are often identical in style and layout. To compound the monotony further, students are often expected to sit still during lessons, face forward, not fidget or move unnecessarily. Over their primary and secondary school years, this accounts for many thousands of hours of studying in discomfort, resulting in poor, under-developed posture. This is why good, ergonomic educational furniture is absolutely essential – to create at long last a more agile and flexible learning environment.
