Elementary School Kids

This just seems like a conflict of interest to me......

The whole school (300 students) goes on a field trip to an apple orchard.

$17.00 a kid to take a 2 mile bus ride, a small paper cup of Apple Cider, one doughnut, one hotdog and a bottle of water.

The kicker is one of the teachers at this school OWNS the orchard.

There are two other apple orchards within the same mileage from the school.

What do you think about this?

    maybe the teacher gave a discount who knows?

    Quoting maxswolfsuit:


    If they are giving the same or better deal than the other orchards I don't see it as a an issue.

    The money probably mainly covers the bus. It's outrageously expensive to bus students. It makes field trips really tricky.

     Most of the money may have gone for the transportation. Our school has a field trip that they do every year and it is unbelievable how mucg the bus company charges for transport.
