Kilns: What's Best?

I'm a 2-D teacher who will start teaching pottery in the fall, and need to
equip my room with everything necessary to run three one year classes. In
looking at kiln's I've come across Dyna-Kilns with L&L's Dyna-Glow element
holders. Is it worth the extra money for this feature? are they easier to
change elements? Is their Dyna-Trol Automatic program control truely easy
to use? Does it still require cones? How deep is too deep of a kiln for
ease of stacking? I'm 5' 9" but the back's not so good any more. Most I
just have to watch how I pick things up and not to lean over with heavy
items? How heavy are those kiln shelves??? Is a damp box worth it, or is
open metal shelving and plastic bags just as good? Ideas about other useful
equipment (pug mill etc.) would be helpful.,as well as any great resources
for inexpensive supplies or helpful books would be appreciated.
