This paper explores teachers' perceptions of the use of their classroom settings and how they react towards their physical space. It examines whether teachers feel empowered or defeated by their environments and how different perceptions demonstrate different attitudes towards the space. This paper is focused on the interview data that is used to support observations made in the classroom with the purpose to probe deeper beneath trend relationships established earlier. The qualitative interview data therefore enables examining more closely the meaning behind the constructs that resulted from analysis of the quantitative data. Striking differences on attitudes were identified.
