Research shows that educators believe travel positively benefits their students. Yet many say that the cost of travel is too high for many of their students—especially for those on free and reduced lunch programs.
“I extend the sincerest of thanks to you for allowing us to see the fires kindled in the eyes of our students.”
—Lisa Faulkner-Jones, Charles Hart Middle School
