! Standing Desk Petition
You’ve all heard that sitting is the new smoking. A growing number of experts, backed by various studies, argue that long-term sitting—sitting too much—is negatively affecting human physiology. From shortening your life to lower back and neck pain, this sedentary lifestyle is a public health crisis. Even for an active individual, the harmful effects of too much sitting can not be reversed by exercising. The obvious remedy is standing during the day and in class. Students must be given the option to stand during the school day via standing desks. If you truly believe that being sedentary is harmful to your health, please say yes in the petition provided below.
Read more about the benefits of standing desks here.
Please note that this petition is not intended to revamp all the desks of a Fairview classroom, but to provide the option of a handful of standing desks per classroom for student use.
