[PHOTOS] Schools In China Have Desks That Turn Into Beds For Students To Take Naps
Gone are the days when these students had to wait until the end of school to take naps at home
All they need to do is push the table top and the armrests up and – voilà! – they have an instant reclining chair ready for them to snuggle into for their midday nap
During lunch break, teachers on duty patrol the room and monitor the students' sleep status
Improving sleep quality of primary and secondary school students has always been the focus of school management and parents
In 2021, Chunguang Primary School's management in Handan City found that most of the students who took naps with their heads on their desks after lunch would wake up with neck and arm stiffness.
To resolve the issue and provide students with "high-quality lunch break", the school took the lead in purchasing new foldable tables and chairs so that students can rest more comfortably.
Since the introduction of the innovation at the start of 2022, the transformative folding desk has won praise from teachers, students, and parents in China.
