Field trips: What students gain from having input into school budgets
Taking 175 sixth-graders on two forms of transportation, then leading them on a one mile walk through San Francisco to a downtown science museum is no small task. But it’s one teacher Linda Holt may be doing far more regularly in the coming years. That's because her school district, in Vallejo, Calif., made the decision last summer to allocate more money to field trips over the next several school years. The decision comes as a result of California’s new school funding rules, which eliminated many of the traditional earmarks on state funding and handed the privilege, and the challenge, of allocating funds to the districts.
