Elimination of all field trips in elementary and middle schools impacts quality of education I have been trying to find out why our california school district has eliminated all field trips for 2014-2015. They state they can no longer ask for "money"? NO WHERE can I find legislation to back this up? Every child has had the ability to go on any field trip (example, astrocamp), even if they have not had the ability to pay, the district would pay for them and the rest of the parents (who can pay), pay and off we go. The district is telling us that they can no longer ask any parent to pay for anything, however Education Code 35330(b), 35331. Has not been amended. I am not happy!
