Why Standing Desks for Students?
THE GOAL IS GIVING EVERY KID IN AMERICA THE CHOICE TO STAND UP IN THEIR CLASSROOM.
#StandUpOurKids is a movement committed placing standing desks for students at school and kids at home. Before they can stand up for their dreams they need to know their school is giving them the opportunity to stand up. We believe the 1st step in allowing kids to stand up for their dreams is allowing them to choose how they learn. Every kid in America should be given the opportunity to stand up in their classroom if they choose, whether they use a standing desk, or a high table.
Stand Up Our Kids LLC is an organization committed to helping schools place standing desks for students across America.
Traditionally, our children SIT in an audience type setting with a speaker on the stage, all day, everyday. As modern society has continued to evolve, the school classroom has been very slow to evolve.
Standing desks for kids can be one simple answer to much larger challenges in our country. We are showing these youngsters that sitting at a desk 6-8 hours per day is the proper thing to do for a good, healthy life. Is that reasonable? Schools that have already converted to standing desks have seen an increase in student engagement, as well as performance.
Standing is a natural position that promotes more blood flow, less sedentary behavior and increased interaction. Standing desks are a simple change to a classroom.
Standing up can also be a position that helps students gain confidence in a room full of people. Ultimately, kids should have the choice to stand up in the classroom for many good reasons. If we want kids to think for themselves at an early age, then giving them the choice to use standing desks in the classroom can help them learn how to make a decision for themselves.
This is the future of education and it starts today! Help us promote standing desks for students in the classroom. We must be teaching kids to periodically stand up to take care of their bodies but also take ownership of their education experience.
