Great idea here! Teach high school students about alternative fuels by producing biodiesel for notoriously filthy school buses. So an ag teacher in Wisconsin starts researching the project after the school board wanted to hear more. Unfortunately he had to offer the plan to the state's building-safety czar and the scrooge of all scrooges, the district's insurance company. You know the rest. The state inspector said the amount of methanol needed would violate the building codes and the insurance company just said the project was "highly undesirable." So the project is on hold. At least the administration is behind the idea. School superintendent Gary Scheuerell says, "This is something we don't want to give up on."
