In Their Own Words, Urban Students Make Suggestions for Improving the Appearance of Their Schools
Doan, Kim; Jablonski, Brian
Urban Review: Issues and Ideas in Public Education, v44 n5 p649-663 Dec 2012
In their own words, 50 students in two Los Angeles area schools reveal their feelings about litter, graffiti, and the appearance of their schools. The analysis includes a discussion of the research in environmental psychology as it pertains to overcrowding, noise and pollution, design and appearance, and their effects on productivity. Excerpts of students' writings are included in their own words. The article concludes with solutions proposed by the students to create a clean and attractive school: more trashcans, nicely painted walls, and maintain landscaping.
