The Ikea Academy

A blog post by Albert Semple

I'm particularly pleased with the image below.

I'm of an age where lots of my peers want to discuss the choice of secondary school for our respective children, and my mock-up of what the Ikea Academy would look like is quite convincing. (All done in PowerPoint — no Photoshop was used!)

I feel like this drew people in, whether they might be interested in sending their children, or whether they wanted to articulate outrage at private sector interference in the school system.

But then, only to realise, it's just a fictional invention as the set up for a really bad pun!

IKEA built a private school
 For children bright and clever.
The school looks really trendy, but
 Assembly takes forever.
