Daylight.. or not

I am still amazed and incredibly depressed to see schools blocking up large windows to provide additional display space.  The other side of this window is a classroom that is so dark that it resembles a cave - with a total explosion of display - some quite old and fading.  The benefit that this borrowed light into the classroom would bring  has been totally lost.

We all know that light and daylight especially is really important for young people and their learning - and that the latest research shows that young pupils like creative attractive display but not too much of it - rather zoned, organised and neat.

To increase acres of more display at the loss of additional natural light is a surely a tragedy.
