RbW Poster Child of the Week

April 28, 2006 at 12:29 pm (Raised by Wolves)

This week’s Raised by Wolves Poster child is the tour company who booked four busloads of kids to go on a trip to reward them for being top students for a day when Six Flags Marine World in Vallejo, California was closed.

From the article:

“It was pretty much a fiasco,” said Washoe County School District spokesman Steve Mulvenon. “They ended up wasting a day that those kids could have better spent in class or doing what they were going to do at the park.”

Gee, there’s an understatement. I’ll be really surprised if there isn’t more flak on this from both students and parents involved. I’m also wondering why the company’s name isn’t mentioned.

    I heard about that this morning. It was classic! I feel sorry for them to be riding for like 4 hours to nowhere, but still, it’s quite comical in a sadistic kind of way.

    Lysie–Yep.

    Vince–I felt so bad for the kids too.

    EVERYONE–After your first comment is approved you’ll be able to post unmoderated. I thought this was the best solution until I learn my way around here.

    I guess those Califorinians think differently than the rest of us. Maybe they thought the bus ride itself would be a treat.

    Vanessa–I think it’s just plain dumbass to schedule tours, complete with tickets, to somewhere that isn’t open on the date you set the tour for. I’m betting a lawyer is checking into both the legality and the possibility of a lawsuit for fraud and pain and suffering too.

    Laurie–So true.
