Student Travels

I've seen the commercial of a school offering International on-the job training for students. I felt envious because back in the days when I was still in school, not one of the schools I went to offered international travels for students.

In the US and other countries, their field trips sometimes take place outside the country. Why we can’t do the same here is beyond me. Maybe it’s because of all the hassles associated with traveling abroad. In order to promote international education tours, there should be a dedicated student travel agencies here like Hemisphere Educational Travel which specializes in student travel Canada, US, Europe, etc.

Imagine what kids and teenagers will learn with International field trips. Instead of learning about the pyramids or Da Vinci’s work in the confines of the classroom, seeing it first hand would be much more education, plus fun.
