Send to sends to one person and we need to have one person (the teacher in
this use case) send to everyone in the class/neighborhood.

That said, I wonder if we can use this as a work around while we wait for
designers and programmers to figure out the usecase.

Is there a clever human engineering solution that would quickly allow each
kid to send it to two other kids and get full coverage quickly?  sort of
like a calling tree?  I think what I'm asking is how could I in a  classroom
management situation set up file sending tree quickly that includes everyone
and doesn't cause too much chaos and is resilient to kids being absent and
some kids being socially isolated.
