02 Apr Making Life More Convenient
Education for children today is a far cry from what it was in yesteryears. he era of one-room schoolhouses, coal stoves, individual chalk slates, and one teacher for all grades combined is a thing of the past. The world is a different place than what it was, and education today has conveniences that children of earlier eras didn’t experience. Consider the following examples:
The pleasure of boxed pencils and electric pencil sharpeners, making it a snap to write on a piece of paper. How about pens, individualized crayon boxes, markers, colored pencils, paints, and more? Because they are inexpensive and so easy to get, children have much wider access to writing materials and art supplies as never before.
Backpacks. Having something to carry things back and forth to school in makes it easy to keep everything together in one place. And let’s not even get started on how cool it is to be able to choose a bag that sports your favorite movie character or superhero on the front.
Planners. In some cases it’s tough for young folks to remember everything they need to create for several classes, and companies that produce planners have come up with an easy, compact solution. Having a small book where kids can write everything down and take note of it all is genius.
School lunch. These days, you can pay up front and schools will provide lunch for kids. This is especially nice if you’re a working parent and your mornings are super busy cuz you’re trying to get out the door, too.
What about educational learning apps? Apps have changed how we interact with the world at large, and this is true for children, too, offering your kids with a fun way to get the supplemental help they need without it feeling like a drag. And let’s not neglect all of the online educational resources that are free, too, in addition to YouTube channels dedicated solely to educational aims.
And just in case you’re beginning to wonder what any of this has to do with our industry, we’ll just tell you. Did you know that, as a motorcoach company, we also assist schools in offering safe, reliable transportation to and from school for today’s children? Moreover, we’ve helped provide school trip transportation, and this isn’t just at the K-12 level. We are on hand to collaborate with educational transportation needs through college and beyond. Having one vehicle that can transport an overall educational group is certainly a satisfaction that earlier eras wouldn’t have hoped for. It’s easy to go and explore areas that simply wouldn’t have been possible a century ago. Bottom line? When you need help getting your students from here to there, we hope that we’re the company you call!
