Overcrowding is an issue experienced by many schools, but it’s not often that the problem is resolved by creating makeshift classrooms out of aeroplanes.

    Sadly, overcrowding will be a problem with this classroom!

    This story is discussed on the BT site:

    It is a Cessna Citation Bravo 550 which they said will be a classroom for 15, but it could be quite a squeeze, plus the teacher had better be small!

    Apparently they paid £4,000.00 for this scrap.

    Costs: low-loader transportation, wind turbines, solar panels, ventilation, health and safety, etc. They seem reluctant to give an estimate of the final bill. Hardly cost effective. Sounds like a waste of school money.
