Ha the state gives money to schools, but that's slowly disappearing as well. I'd imagine that there are some high school study abroad
programs out there that could be coordinated through the use of technology. Students could travel overseas and be monitored through live journals and live conference calls. Hopefully, technology allows students to be 'free' from the confines of the schools and gives them the ability to travel all over the world in order to make a difference. I wish they had programs in place like this when I was a kid.
