A controversial field trip for Columbus High School freshman is back on, for some.
It's a bonding exercise Columbus High School freshman have been doing for about a decade. They would go to the Wisconsin National Guard's Volk Field for lessons in team building, rope climbing and an anti-drug message.
But two parents complained this year, including an ex-Marine, that it was just a back door attempt to recruit the students once they became seniors.
Principal Connie Valenza says the parents contended the Volk Field trip presented only one side of a controversial issue: the Military. According to the school district's controversial issues policy, the school would have to come up with a field trip that presented the other side.
After another hundred students complained about the trip being cancelled, Valenza made it optional. Parents can keep their students home if they wish.
