Hazards - Elements that
Create Feelings of Exclusion


Rigidity / too many rules


  • Overly rigid school policies - dress code, student behavior, etc.

  • Overly enforced policies - being constantly
    monitored - ‘fishbowl’

  • No opportunities for collaboration

  • Teachers not open to feedback from students

  • Teachers do not collaborate, communicate between themselves, departments, etc

  • Schedules that cannot be modified


Minor Intervention

  • Rigid, traditional classroom layouts - rows of desks; factory classrooms

  • Hierarchy of furniture / poor furniture configuration; inability to move furniture
