| Temporary Classroom Buildings Offer Great Flexibility|
|The process of delivering education to cover the maximum number of students is a challenge every nation has to face and overcome. It is a great social responsibility along with health care and it would be the failure of a nation if it cannot provide basic education facilities to its citizens due to whatever reasons.|
It is in this context that schools should also recognise their equal responsibility towards this initiative and take steps to ensure that they do not have to refuse any student the right to education facilities due to reasons of money, accessibility or space constraints. If they have to make use of temporary classroom buildings to tide over the problem, they should not hesitate to do so.
The problem of space is indeed becoming a big problem for many schools and they are not able to accommodate the numbers they want. Many of them are cramming many students into a class to overcome this problem. That is resulting in an environment that is not conducive for healthy imparting of education and is also leading to other conflicts within the children. Both the teaching faculty and the children are not being served due to this and the outcome is that students after some time just stop coming to school.
So on one hand, they have a space problem and on the other hand, the number of students enrolling for education is also on the increase. This is expected as well as forecasted to keep growing with time and that is why there is a crying need to come out with options that can mitigate the space constraint.
So what does a school that wants to increase its capacity, or just wants to place its students in an alternate environment till the time its own building is revamped, do? Many schools have been putting off their renovation plans simply because they do not know where and how to carry out the process. They do not want the students to suffer as well and that is creating an uncomfortable situation for them.
The only alternative for such schools is to opt for temporary classroom buildings. Whether it is a school seeking a facelift or renovating with the intention of creating more space, these structures have been found to be ideal as a viable makeshift arrangement. This decision should however be taken only after a clear idea of how such structures can be useful and the kind of modalities that go into it are duly considered. That is because schools have to be also aware of the fact that such structures, though temporary to start with, can in course of time become permanent and long lasting ones and they need not always look at them only from the short term view point.
Temporary classroom buildings can be used in a variety of ways after they fulfill their primary objective. With proper energy efficiency and other functional upgrades, they can serve as useful structures for a long time to come and give great return on investment.
