Field trips should be free because there are so many field trips in a year, So the school will have to make budget cuts. What about art, Music, And even gym! Who wants those to be shorter? Nearly EVERYONE likes and wants to keep gym. So think about that when you think of field trip costs.
Our school just experienced an overnight camping field trip the worth 2067RMB! And many of the students will not go because their family will not be able to afford them or the think it is just wasting money. And you can’t even sleep in a hotel! It is wasting money! While the conditions are bad and students may get sick while a medical insurance is not so expensive.
Yes they should Field trips should be free because there are so many field trips in a year, So the school will have to make budget cuts. What about art, Music, And even gym! Who wants those to be shorter? Nearly EVERYONE likes and wants to keep gym. So think about that when you think of field trip costs.
If that trip is important to the exam then that student is going to fail that exam, Which is simply not fair for those people. Everybody has their differences and they should be respected. Those students who can afford it can pay if they can not then the school can help that person.
We don't need more taxes (which is how subsidizing field trips would happen). If you are worried about low income students not being able to go on field trips, Go to your child's teacher and express a willingness to help students out that cannot do field trips for this reason. Pony up some money and be a little bit of a hero to some kid rather than virtue signalling and getting everyone else to pay for it.
Also, If you subsidize something, They will just end up using more money.
At best, They can be inspiring but for the most part, They are a distraction. The cost of field trips is not only financial but they also take away class time.
If you and others are very interested in a specific place, Hold a fund raiser or see if your parents will flip the bill. Then schedule it for a date/time when class is not in session.
There is no conceivable reason why school trips should be subsidized, It's a luxury that parent's purchase for the enjoyment of their children. And as such it should be financed by the people benefiting from the service rather than the tax payer who receives nothing of value in return for the money spent.
