I was watching the news tonight and they talked about a school district in Dallas that sent all their 5th grade boys to see "Red Tails." The girls were left at school to watch a movie. They said that the movie theater couldn't accommodate everyone and they didn't think the girls would like this movie. An original Tuskegee Airman was not happy that the girls were excluded. I found an article here: http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/b...
Why not just take half the fifth grade one day and another half on another day? I don't understand why you would organize a field trip for a grade and then exclude half of them, a specific half at that.
In 8th grade we were invited to a local movie theater to watch "October Sky." The owner was from the area where the movie was filmed and wanted to share it with local schools. He gave us all a popcorn and drink too. I know I wouldn't have been happy if I was told I couldn't go because I was a girl and I wouldn't be interested in it.
