War Hits School Trips

Following the outbreak of war in Iraq, many schools are rethinking plans for student trips abroad, reports today's Daily Yomiuri. At least 54 schools had cancelled trips as of Monday, almost half of which were for English study in the US or Britain. Some schools changed their planned destination several times before deciding to stick to domestic travel. But even trips within Japan have been hit, with many tours to Okinawa being cancelled. The latest figures from the education ministry show that 1,131 high schools sent students abroad in 2001.
