Teachers that stink!!!!
Tom

    I just posted this as a reply to another thread, but this
    is something everyone involved with a student tour of any
    kind should know!!!Some teachers rake in THOUSANDS in stipends on a per head
    basis
    from these companies for their work putting the trip
    together
    (stipend is built into the trip cost)...I have no problem
    with
    someone earning a free trip and perhaps a small stipend
    for their
    time and efort. But, often these RATS are raking in
    thousands of
    dollars PLUS their trip is free. They could not take as
    much and
    negotiate a lower price for the families that often
    struggle to
    pay for them...THESE PEOPLE ARE THE LOWEST FORM OF LIFE.

    I know these things because I worked in the student travel
    business fro quite some time...I have seen stipends as
    high as
    $200.00 per head for a trip with 175 kids. YES....That rat
    got a
    $35,000 check while each of his students paid $200.00 more
    than
    they had to for the trip.

    If anyone is reading this post that does this, you are a
    SCUMBAG,
    and may you rot in the deepest pit of hell!!!!!!

    For the rest of you, especially parents...Speak to your
    school
    boards and your organizers...Make sure you are not being
    taken
    advantage of by those claiming to do you a service.
