One of the jobs of the staff is to be role models. Even on those occasions where they haven’t been asked to help with student learning and there are no administrative tasks left to accomplish, they are still meant to demonstrate possibilities for adult life. They are supposed to have hobbies and interests, and to have character: to be honest and curious and responsible. In that way, too, Sudbury schools teach a “hidden curriculum” of the “soft skills” we all need in life.
Another case where just because you don’t see something on the surface doesn’t mean there’s nothing below.
