Dale,

What I meant is that I believe it is proper behavior of a staff fmember at a
democratic school to engage fully with the students and other adults there,
including making suggestions as to activities they see as useful, fun, or
otherwise of positive value to others. I also see this as proper behavior of
a student at a democratic school.
