Though I advocate for small schools, the real goal of course, is to find the right size school for each child. There is no question that many students benefit from being in a large school.
Ultimately though, it’s all about the relationship between student and teacher, and that’s where the perfect fit happens: when the teacher finds a responsive student and the student finds a mentor. And whether that comes in a small school or large, outside of school or online, at church or through a local business-school partnership matters little.
I just happen to think it happens more often in small schools.
