I quite agree

I was just looking up Isaac’s school’s phone number to call him in sick.  (Sadly, if he’s too sick to go to school, he’s probably also too sick to take care of Henry and Hazel all day.)  At his school’s homepage, I saw this:

“Schools need to be places where a student will have contact with older people who have vital lives of their own, and who are themselves authentic human beings.”
