A Comfy Chair

“Mom, this is the part I don’t understand about school…how come only the teachers get the comfy chairs? I think I would learn a lot better if I had a comfy chair too.”  Jay-8

I think the kid’s got a point. Right this very second, I am sitting in an extremely uncomfortable chair and I can’t think of a single witty thing to write…I’ve got nothing. Maybe this comfy chair theory should be tested. Here’s what I propose…

1) All students should have a comfy chair. No more uncomfortable, wooden, straight-backed chairs. I want plush, cushy, comfy chairs in all the classrooms.

2) The green vinyl seating on all school buses should be replaced with high-quality, genuine leather, reclining seats.

3) Cafeteria benches should be covered in plush cushions, preferably made with polyester fabric for easy clean-up.

4) All toilet seats should be replaced with state-of-the-art, padded, anti-bacterial seats with optional heating controls.

5) Auditorium seating should be updated to meet current chiropractic standards. Movie theater style seats made of memory foam and including lumbar support should be considered.

This might be the key to increased performance on state standardized testing, better behavior, longer attention spans, higher GPA’s and increased college-acceptance rates.

Hmm…I think we might be on to something.

    I would have to agree! I love the way kids think. Simple, to the point, and honest 🙂


  2. My fourth grader complains that they have to sit on the gym/cafeteria/auditorium floor to watch performances, while the teachers sit in chairs. She wants a special pad. 🙂

    I am a teacher for kindergardeners. I always hated sitting on the floor when I was a student while my teacher got a chair. So now I sit on the floor with my students.
