In the preceding chapter the estimates of the ex-pupils and pupils about their happiness in school were examined; in the present chapter the free responses are added. The estimates give a reasonable accuracy while the free responses, not as reliable quantitatively, produce both greater depth and human colour, reminding us that we are not concerned merely with grey statistical abstractions, but with living boys and girls who are our children and other people’s children. We seek the greater happiness and well-being of Jack and Jill and their children after them, though we would agree that there are other criteria to be kept in mind.
