BART tickets for ESL field trips

The cost of BART tickets for 30 students and three chaperones to be used for field trips is $449, including <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

I teach ELD 2 and ELD 3 (ESL classes) at an urban public high school in the San Francisco Bay Area and have many students who are new arrivals to the United States. I have found field trips to be an invaluable method of introducing the students to the cultural opportunities of the Bay Area. We have gone to the Oakland Museum to learn about the history of California and to see the Day of the Dead altars and exhibits on display every October. The trip to Angel Island Immigration Station helps the class to research the history of immigration to the United States, especially to California, and to examine groups who have struggled in the past to gain admission and acceptance to life here. Many museums have free days or offer free admission to low income students, but we need BART tickets to get there. The San Francisco Asian Art Museum is a wonderful resource for the Asian students, as well as for the other groups to appreciate the common bonds they share with each other and to support the adjustment issues faced by each member of the class. San Francisco also has a Mexican museum and several wonderful art museums, all accessible by BART. Thank you so much for your support of this very needy population of students.
