This may be a strange question....but here goes. At our school we have all but eliminated the "mac"...for obvious reasons. Anyway, we have a few IMAC's that are reasonably new. Could a person put a Windows OS on these machines to get some use out of them?

No, different processor architecture, wouldn't work. You could use a VM, or install linux but that's probably not what you had in mind. Have you considered selling them and using the money to buy some PCs?
