I think a Rosy Boa would be a fine choice for a classroom pet, provided it's not being handled for hours on end every day of the week. One thing I've noticed is that the males (particularly adult males) tend to not to have the intense feeding response that females do, as long as they are well-fed. The smaller size would be an advantage as well, since the children who are afraid of snakes might find your BCI to be intimidating, and you wouldn't have to worry so much about uninformed parents who think the snake is going to eat their child (LOL). My 2005 male Rosy, Han Solo, is my first pick when I want to show a snake to someone who's afraid of snakes or has never had any contact, and I've never had a bad response to him... People who were afraid of snakes are drawn to him because he's small, moves slowly, adorable, and "looks like candy".
