  I'm writing an essay in school on why RPG's should be incorporated into education.  I have some statistical stuff, but I think that I also need a few anecdotes to back it up as stories have more impact than numbers.  Could anyone point me to some good threads regarding playing RPG's in a school setting?

You're in luck, there was such a thing going on quite recently:

Yeah, hopefully you find something useful in those. I played Under the Bed with 16-17 year old school teens, but I wasn't trying to teach them maths or anything with it. Just mainly aimed for some empowering group building -stuff.

If you have anything specific you'd like stories about, just ask!
