Bad Education. Image shows left to right: Warren (Ali Hadji-Heshmati), Stephen (Layton Williams)
Stephen and Mitchell are told one of them will be fired so go to extreme lengths to save their jobs. Meanwhile, Fraser has accidentally started printing the entire internet.

Further details

It's a new day at Abbey Grove, and as usual, Mitchell and Stephen are totally neglecting their teaching duties. Hoburn tells them that she is going to have to get rid of one of their departments unless they can prove the educational merits of their subjects.

Meanwhile Fraser is panicking as he has accidentally sent the entire internet to the printer in alphabetical order and can't stop the continuous flow of printouts - not a good look when Hoburn is on the warpath over wastage.
