Why try to re-create an old fashioned notion of a classroom and badge it as the “future now”.

They don’t want to be shot for their celestial light
and lose their teeth and eyes.

Children whose outdoor play areas were transformed from gravel yards to mini-forests showed improved immune systems within a month, research has shown.
Not too surprising except for the speed but another reason to learn outdoors.
