Students who have the opportunity to go abroad have higher achievement and increase their aptitude for college. Students are having to compete in a world job market so they need to see and experience other cultures.

Maybe they should try using the internet. You will see alot more and its cheaper and safer.I really do not see where going to Paris will help anyone achieve a higher status or will make a difference on their college success. Most will probably be taking remedial classes just to pass their first year. If they really need a cultural experience go to Haiti and volunteer.

Stay at home and volunteer. Clean up your own city first.

But they are the best that Forrest City has to offer. They are going to France and teach them French people all about fried chicken, green beans, pickled pigs feet, black eyed peas, and chiterlings. I think the French should pay for the trip. They dont know how honored they are that these children want to visit and bestow their vat knowlege they have learned at Forrest City schools.
