If you refer to the hybrid routing protocol, it constructs a spanning 
tree of the whole mesh network rooted at some node. This is meant to be 
used in non-homogenous meshes (eg having an MPP or access point that 
acts as the root). So it may help in a school environment, but not in a 
simple mesh environment where all nodes are equal (if you attempt to 
build a different tree rooted at every node, you will probably face the 
wrath of a proactive protocol running on a mobile network - god save us 
from such a day ;-)
