عنوان مقاله [English]
Little attention is paid to student’s psychological aspects, when planning educational environment. According to the environmental psychologists, the environment in educational settings should be planned in such a way that could facilitate learning and make it more enjoyable. The increasing need for developing educational settings along with increasing population as well as the inadequacy of existing settings is one of the main problems that needs attention. Unfortunately, most educational settings in our country do not meet the standards as far as children and adolescent’s psychological needs are concerned. This could have negative effects on their social and behavioral functions, as well as their attitude and insight towards education. The purpose of the present study was to investigate and evaluate the standards set by the organization for renovation, development and equipping schools and approved by the Iranian national management and planning organization. These standards are now the only criteria for architects and planners of educational settings. Evaluating and improving such criteria is of utmost importance, since creating interest in students towards the educational environment is one of the influential factors in student’s attitude towards the school environment and eventually their educational achievement.
The research method of this study was a descriptive causal-comparative one. The research population consisted of all female high school students in Isfahan (from both standard and non-standard high schools). Four educational districts were randomly selected from five educational districts. The results showed that there is significant differences between student’s attitudes in standard and non-standard high schools, concerning the use of color in classes, in the sense that students in standard high schools had positive attitude towards the high school setting and classes.
