Choosing a public school
Students form family groups of (ideally) four: two parents, two teenage children. The wealthy parents want to send their teenage son and daughter to private schools in English. Students take it in turns to read the short prospectuses for four public shools and then decide which child will go to which school. This can be made more intesting by setting a budget of GBP 15,000 per term.
