Research that Benefits Children and their Families

Standard

If I could research an area that would benefit children and their families, it would be on how the physical school environment affects children behavior. All children should have the best place to learn. They should not be short changed on having nice classroom furniture, bright walls, lots of maniupaltives, etc. I work in a district that has 10 schools and 9 of the schools are run down. They were all built between 1930 and 1940. The hallways are dark, the paint is old and pale, the classroom/school furniture is old and worn and many of the buildings have a lingering odor. Overall, the behavior is poor and we have very little parental support. I want to take these economically disadvantaged students and place them in a brand new building, with bright colors, new classroom/school furniture and a new playground to see if their behavior would improve from making just the physical change in environment. I feel that this change would have a huge impact on students and their behavior as well as the parents.
