Government to implement MicroClassrooms following the MicroPub Revolution
Following the phenomenal rise of the MicroPub, the UK Government is recommending that schools should start to use cupboards as micro-classrooms. “Putting pupils and teachers in cupboards makes a lot of sense for schools looking to reduce budgets and make the most of limited room”, an Education Minister has said.
The MicroPub revolution began when Martyn Hillier turned a former butcher’s shop in the Kent village of Herne into a pub. The MicroPub focuses on cask ales, good conversation and friendly atmosphere. MicroPubs are now appearing across the UK with 300 now open. A Government spokesperson announced today (1/4/2017) that the micro pub model could effectively be applied to classrooms resulting in considerable cost savings for schools looking to cut budgets.
