Below is an excerpt from Gracia's interview:

Garcia explains César García, a professor at Central Washington University (USA), believes that "the current generation is perhaps the most individualistic and overprotected in history and the one that has spent the least amount of time maintaining face-to-face contact with others. They value safety and they find it in the solitude of their rooms, protected by a screen that is also their way of contact with the outside."

He suggests less homework and more group work in the classroom supervised, not managed, by ​​the teacher and also to strengthen student clubs in schools, "where they learn to have responsibilities such as managing budgets, leading or organizing meetings."
