so there's an ongoing feed on facebook about small school districts consolidating, a lot of the replys are that peoples' kids are better off where they are, that schools should NOT consolidate, et al.

I do think kids are capable of adapting and pretty resilient, assuming they are more or less healthy and decently cared for overall.

OTOH, I don't think that means you should just do whatever with them, nor do I think it means that any school (or other) situation is just as good as any other.

On the whole I think kids are more resilient than adults, but I also think kids vary in their personal resilincy levels. Some kids will not blink and eye at things other kids will brood about for months.
