Homeschooler Interest: Entire Town Lives (& Schools) In Same Building

This video about a schoolteacher in Whittier, Alaska, has been making the viral rounds. Nearly the entire town of Whittier lives in one building. Some of the video gives off a depressing Caves of Steel vibe, and if you're like me, you'll notice with relief the first shot showing a window instead of a hallway. But that feeling is probably more Alaska than high-rise; I imagine that small town life in Alaska involves a lot of isolation and a lot of staying at home.

One of the things that drew my attention takes place in the first third of the video. The relationship between this teacher and her students is fascinating, particularly from the perspective of  a homeschooler. Take some time to watch.
