However, Minecraft on the Pi is free, you just need to update to the latest version of Raspbian. If you already have Pis then you can simply get on and use it!
The costing for this will very much be down to individual schools and their setups. Some will have keyboards, Mice, Monitors that can be used with Raspberry Pis and others will have none of this, but as far as teaching potential is concerned the Pi brings a wealth of creative opportunities including a highly hackable version of Minecraft.
On the other hand if this is an after school club the loss of survival mode will be a big deal for most students and takes away a lot of their fun! Its also possible that students could pay for their subscription, which they will then be able to use anywhere.
