America is broke and the morons running the school are educating the kids how to be stupid and go deeper in debt by going to China & Cuba where they take them to the good parts of the country to teach them being a commie is good. The moron parents cheer it on thinking it's educational, yeah they are teaching their kids commuism is good and using their money and other America's money to sell out America.

How much does Shumins student travel agency make off the travel ?

back in the old days class trips local or next state over. They could learn a lot more going to NYC or Boston. It could be a "Survival" story. Does Shumlin still make your box lunch on the bus. P&J or all baloney

sturbridge village, mystic seaport to learn about our countries history, now they take them to show them how good life is under the RED Flag. The parents should be horrified as should most of the school employee's and other kids.

They probably skipped the factory tours where 12 year olds work 14 plus hours a day 7 days a week and the mines where prison labor hopes to survive the day without dying on their forced labor job after they got arrested on trumped up charges and convicted in a totally corrupt system.

It's great to live in the land of the free, the school kids are here raking my leaves for me, some sort of community service they get credit for. They did a good job painting my house and I hear the school is going to teach them how to be maids next so the little suckers can come clean my house, it's educational to learn skills.

I'm looking into opening a McDonalds University so I can charge the little suckers for an education in how to run a restuarant and give them hands on training. Why hire help when I can get help to pay me to work for me. Just call me Professor Joe and come get a burger & fries at my not-for-profit I make $250,000 a year at, but it's not-for-profit.

Maybe if you all weren't so close minded, you'd check out other countries and see how they are for yourself. A truly amazing experience. As for China, the people want to change, and we can help them. By going over there and developing relationships,(Like what Leland & Gray does) we can change many of their views and hope that change their country for the better.

DCF in action

The department also is working to increase scrutiny of financial reports, a significant challenge in an agency with an annual budget of more than $330 million, 1,000 employees

http://www.burlingtonfreepress.com/article/20...

Probably $100 million is eaten up by payroll and other over head costs, that is how socialism works, the party has a party on the funding and the worse things get the more funding they can get to hire more friends & relatives. Nepotism run wild while kickbacks rule the system.

It's the computers fault high paid management had no clue what was going on.

Joe is right on this topic. The impressionable students will be treated to nothing more then a dog and pony show. They will return with glowing reports of the good life living under a brutal dictatorship.

They could work in a Vet or circus when they get their special education and all learn how to pin the "tale" on the Asses they follow for schooling

Never go anywhere or learn nothing. It only leads to being a liberal hippy trust-funder flower child. Forget about education, kids need to learn about hard work. Teachers are leaches and scam artists. Other countrys are irelevant. Stick to the US of A, its the gratest countrie on earth, you dont need to know nothing else besides that.

she has been pee'd off her whole life and can't even tell the difference between education and being feed propaganda and b/s. Re-education camps are common in komie countries.

It don't matter she will probably stroke out in 3 weeks.
