My students need softer light than the fluorescent overhead lights in the classroom that cannot be adjusted while working on their computer-based curriculum.
These are Intellectually disabled and learning disabled students with behavior concerns which limits their interactions with peers.
Reading and writing levels are at the 2nd-grade level and Math skills are basic.
All of them receive free meals, and many live with relatives instead of parents.
They will require life-long community and family support to obtain and keep employment after high school. Several of them will never be able to live on their own.
These students are in special education class for 7/8 periods.
The lighting in the classroom is bright fluorescent lighting. These lights cannot be adjusted, they are either on or off. With the majority of the curriculum online, the glare on the screens limits the amount of time they can work on their individualized lessons.
The overhead lighting glares and gives the students eyestrain and headaches while working.
Working with the lights off just seems to make the eyestrain worse.
By the end of the day, the students are complaining about their eyes and head hurting from the lighting. With the current lights, they cannot see to complete their class assignments so they are missing out on some of their individualized instruction.
