I teach, and in the past, this was thirty or forty students in a room, with all of us going on a guided tour of some side street in the map of the word, mappa mundi. Of late, it has been a class of adults, or of colleagues, or a very small class of four or fewer young people.

And then came the suggestion — why not five or more, why not ten? Why not start a small school with small classes? Why not make it worth their while for students to learn something, in the odd and frankly rather peculiar ways of teaching you are renowned for?

Something in me cracked. I hope it wasn't a joke.
