He says it's concerns over finance and academic pressure which can leave students feeling isolated:

It's not been in everyday use for thousands of years, but Latin still influences our language.
That's why a charity wants more of us to learn it.
Over the past two years, 'Classics for All' has helped introduce Latin into twenty Norfolk schools - including the Antingham and Southrepps primary school near Cromer.
Jane Maguire, from the charity, believes that learning Latin will allow youngsters to understand modern languages better:
"They learn that Latin is like the roots of a tree.
"From the roots, which are hidden underground, comes the tree trunk and eventually the branches which are English, French, Spanish, Italian.
"It gives them a really good foundation for learning modern foreign languages."

"It allows the curriculum and the assessment to be co-ordinated, so there are in effect no transitions, and in fact one child said to us, its just like moving a classroom."
Suffolk's Education standards were slammed by Ofsted earlier this month, and now a row has broken out in the county, about how best to raise them.
The County Upper Academy Trust in Bury St Edmunds is arguing that All-through schools which teach children from 5 to 18 are the answer - and are opposing the Council's proposal to make Bury, Two Tier like the rest of the county.

A meeting regarding a proposed switch to a two-tier education system in Bury St Edmunds is due to take place later today.
Suffolk County Council wants to initiate the change after introducing the system in other parts of the county.
Bury St Edmunds currently has a three-tier system, and the town's middle schools currently all hold good or above Ofsted ratings.
If the plans are successful, the County Council will aim to close all middle schools in the town.
