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.
Field trips should fall under the school's budget, Or there should be scholarships available in the same way that free and reduced lunch rates are available. Often, Field trips are amazing educational experiences. To hold back a child because their parent or guardian doesn't have the money for it is unfair.
I will be honest i don't know how much it costs to go on a field trip because my school covers all the costs, But basically field trips can be highly educational, For example my year level went on one to a university to take an in depth look at astrology, It was highly educational and also helped with several other assignments we had

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.
As others have said before, It is a luxury, Not a right. School trips are supposed to supplement, And support classroom education, Not replace it. Therefore, A student should legally be able to pass without going on them. . .
Furthermore, There are simply far too many schools, Far too many classes and far too many field trips. This is without even mentioning the ones who'd undoubtably abuse the f*ck out of the system and take their entire Spanish class to live in Spain for 3 months, In a 5-star hotel because the government paid for it. There is simply no way the government can dole out money for every field trip individually.
Which then leaves the last option, That the schools pay for them. In which, I'd advise those who believe "yes" to head to their nearest school on Monday, And ask the principal whether or not they have the necessary funds to allow classes to go on school-funded field trips all year round. . .
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.
