DCPS: "No field trips, we're studying for tests"

Although not mandated from the central office it appears that, for the second year in a row, DCPS middle and high school students can expect to stay firmly planted in their classrooms between now and the administration of their standardized text. Field trips are out; cramming for tests is in. Marc Fisher over at the Post notes how this is keeping students from attending such events as Ford's Theatre's celebration of Abraham Lincoln's 200th birthday.
