Elementary Students From the Bronx Traveling to Germany and Dachau

Imagine if more schools spent $25,000 on trips overseas for their students, instead of sets of Kaplan and Princeton Review test prep books. For me, naive is it sounds, a trip to Europe closes a much more profound "experiential" achievement gap, than superficial gains on a flawed state test. This NY Times article about an elementary school not far from my own got me thinking of the limitless possibilities for students in the Bronx, when their teachers and principals think outside the box.
