that / who

Dear friends,

is the following sentence correct?

Public schools are far from perfect, but they still offer significant benefits to the students that attend their classrooms every day.

I prefer this one

Public schools are far from perfect, but they still offer significant benefits to the students [color=red]who attend their classrooms every day.

The reference is:
publicschoolreview.com/blog … -education

Thanks,
Amir

Both acceptable.

There is nothing wrong with using ‘that’ there, though on a personal level, I also always choose to use ‘who’ over ‘that’ when speaking about people.

Thanks a lot Beeesneees
