When I was still a student, I always prefer seating in the front seat so I can hear the teacher well and I can fully understand her lesson to us. Who among us wanted to sit in the front seat? I am sure many of you would always like to be in the front so you can participate, all the activity that your teacher will give you. Yes, we were free to sit wherever we want before but I guess the teacher have this rules for seating assignment nowadays. Some teachers will do the seating assignment alphabetically but it is better if they would also change that in the next quarter like reshuffling so those students in the back can have the chance to sit in front. Some teachers also would look at the student’s personality, their strengths and weaknesses before they will assign the seats. For those children who have no issues with focusing and cannot be easily destructed, they will be assigning at the back but those children who needs to be push a little to concentrate in the class should seat in front. But parents must put this in mind that the seating arrangement does not always affect the academic performance of the kid. There are kids who are already in front still could not focus in the class and there are kids also who sits in the back can still perform so well and still able to maintain high grades.
If your kid does not perform well in the class, just try to voice out your concern to the teacher. See if the teacher would transfer him or her in front can help the kid with regards of her or his performance at school however if the kid is still not improving maybe this time you need to seek some help, a tutorial perhaps for your kid. Remember there are no dumb kids, they just need a help from the one who can really teach them one on one and properly, maybe they just need somebody to help them to focus for them to cope up with their lesson.
