A few days go, The Edmonton Journal went to interview kids at schools that suffered a drop off in attendance due II new schools coming online. Some of the kids say that partially empty schools are great because they can learn more. I 100% fundamentally disagree. The fuller a school is, the more livelier it is. Plus there is more chance IV social interaction between students both in & out of class. These social interactions allow kids to grow & expand their horizons. Some will be good & some will be bad but at least the kids will know what they can expect out of real life once they leave educational establishments.
