Seven fictional schools that wouldn't pass a safety inspection

At B & N Reads, Jenny Kawecki tagged seven fictional schools that "had better hope no one ever sends a safety inspector their way, because there is no way they’re up to code," including:
Wayside School (Sideways Stories from Wayside School, by Louis Sachar)

Wayside should have been shut down a long time ago for architectural issues alone. 30 floors high, with no sort of support? It’s a death trap. Add to that the fact that one of the teachers turns students into inanimate objects, the lunch food is inedible (where’s Michelle Obama when you need her?), and someone is selling toes, and you’ve got an insurance nightmare on your hands.
Read about the other entries on the list.

Sideways Stories from Wayside School is among Jia Tolentino's top twelve books to creep yourself out with.
