Rocking back on your school chair is a thing of the past. Meet the Max chair. With its curved legs and special design, nobody can lean back on the back legs higher then 5cm. Inventor and former teacher Tome Wates explains his invention: “I was being driven crazy by my student’s constantly rocking back on their chairs, so I decided to solve the problem.”
Around 7000 students are admitted to the hospital every year because of chair-related accidents. 70% of that number was a result of leaning back dangerously far on the chair, and the Max chair is supposed to reduce such incidents.
Others, however, disagree. Some teachers think that the Max chair is a waste of money when you can just force misbehaving students to sit on the floor.
One teacher said “Much cheaper for them to sit on the floor!”
Another said “let them learn from their mistakes the hard way!”
