Reasons Why Schools Need an Elevator

Elevators can be a good addition to schools.

Hi my name is Michael, and I think that elevators are good for schools and my school. These are the pros and cons of elevators in schools.

Schools need elevators for people with injuries and disabilities. So, say if you have a broken leg it will be very hard to go up any kinds of stairs ,but if your school has an elevator you don’t have to walk up stairs. You can just take it to the floor that your class is on.

It can help people who work at the school not have to haul heavy things up the stairs, instead you can just put the stuff in the elevator (of course with you in it) then just take it to where you need to go.

Here (sadly) are some of the cons. Firstly, they can cost a lot of money. Secondly, the school needs to be modified for the elevator to fit. Lastly, Elevators have to be installed (which can take a very long time).But even though the elevator can cost a lot of money, all you need to do is keep saving a little bit of money every time (I’m talking about if the school gets a paycheck), and since the elevator has to be installed you have to plan a time for it to be installed. (I think they would plan it to be installed in the summer).

The elevators still will be a good idea for all the reasons that I have stated, and

That is why schools need elevators and sadly the cons of elevators in schools.
