Clean Classrooms Are Important For Learning, But Teachers Dread The Clean-Up Chore

February 15, 2011: 02:09 AM EST

A survey of 1,000 U.S. school teachers has found that classroom cleaning is a daily chore for a sizeable minority. Forty-two percent of teachers who responded to a Procter & Gamble Bounty brand survey said they did some cleaning, while 94 percent said they felt children learn better when the classroom is tidy. The survey also found that 51 percent of teachers avoid certain class projects because they don’t look forward to cleaning up afterwards. The survey was conducted as part of a “We Love Our School” Week initiative to help schools provide clean learning environments for U.S. schoolchildren. P&G will provide participating schools with enough Bounty paper towels and Mr. Clean to clean all of their classrooms.
