After writing this chapter for three months, I realized I had to split the discussion. Now there will be a full chapter showing that students learn few job skills in school, followed by a separate chapter showing that the education premium, though sharply exaggerated my mainstream labor economists, is still quite high.

Busy, noisy classrooms can be stressful, and small animals can be very adept at hiding symptoms of illness or injury (a lifesaving attribute when trying to avoid predators in the wild, but less than ideal in a setting where children are present). Small animals need large habitats that may not fit in the classroom, and many species need ample fresh produce daily. Even without a live animal present, lessons in responsible pet care and respect for all animals can still be a part of the classroom experience.
