The most oft heard reason for mini blinds instead of roller shades is budget, which is a reasonable concern especially if dealing with other priorities. But, maybe the cost calculation should include, safety concerns, anti-microbial concerns, light control concerns, audio visual usage concerns, and energy cost concerns. In all of these areas modern roller shades are superior to the institutional standard of mini blinds.
Why? Because, roller shades can be made without cords, or with a single loop cord that is connected in a such a way as to greatly eliminate the chance of injury or death by accidental strangulation. Roller shades can be made with a high-tech anti-microbial fabric which greatly reduces the spread of germs. Roller shades reduce glare but allows for natural light and all the advantages of your educational architecture. For audio visual usage, roller shades can offer various light control options which optimize the presentation while maintaining the ability to see the students and their ability to take notes. And, modern roller shades are able to control heat gain in windows in way which provides for a more comfortable and efficient learning space.
