It is typical for classrooms to be set up in rows, or lately, in groups of 3-4 tables (which allow for easier cooperative learning). However, there are fundamental problems for each: In rows, studies have shown that the further back you go, the more discipline problems there are. The visual, aural and physical stimulation from the teacher is increasingly diminished as you move further back. This allows boredom to set in, and as a result, potential disruption.

Packets were sent home, phone calls were made, emails were sent—cookies were even baked! But despite it all, not a single parent showed. Being stood up on Back to School Night can feel like being jilted by your senior prom date, or worse.
