Students Need Clean Schools

Back to School

Students are heading back to school, and they need to work smarter, just like the rest of us. They also need safe, hygienic work environments —students need clean schools. A survey conducted last year gave insights into students’ opinions of their schools’ cleanliness.

Survey Asks Students To Evaluate Restroom Cleanliness

“Ninety percent of those polled agree hygiene was important to them as a student, and 93 percent say they washed and dried their hands every time they used the restroom. And while students generally gave their schools high marks for cleanliness (73 percent said the lavatories were at least somewhat clean), the majority — 57 percent — felt their schools didn’t do enough overall to support on-campus restroom hygiene.”

7 Interview Questions For Measuring Emotional Intelligence

“Emotional intelligence involves self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skills. In other words, it’s a complicated amalgam that hiring managers have a hard time testing for.
