How do you manage printers on Windows workstations?

What I mean, suppose you have many classrooms, different printers (which 
sometimes change) in these classroms - how do you manage which 
workstation (or a group of them) will use which printer?

So far I've been using WPKG for that - as I described here: 

But somehow I feel it isn't the easiest and most intuitive way - it is 
basically running:

rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /q /y /ga /in /n \\server\kyocera

as a domain administrator when machine is booted, and then in a netlogon 
script when a user logs in.

In other ways, I'm looking for an easier way to do it :)
