MORE THAN half of Britain's teachers have no plans to commemorate the millennium in the classroom, despite plans to create a huge education zone in the Millennium Dome, a study has found.
Most of the 1,000 teachers interviewed feared pupils would not be able to benefit from the Dome because of the cost of travel. The report was compiled by the New Millennium Experience Company, which is planning a 1.5-acre site within the Dome devoted to learning. Every school will be invited to take part in projects based in the Greenwich showpiece.
Maggie Semple, the company's head of education, said it was working with travel firms on packages for school Dome visits.
