The Italian school trips get darker and edgier

One more boy, aged 19, died in Milan while his class was on a school trip to Expo. In the middle of the night he felt to his death from a window of the hotel he was staying in. A nearly identical case happened quite recently.

This time, at least, the police is sure that he boy was not thrown or pushed down, but something illegal happened anyway. The victim had drunk alcohol and taken drugs, which were found in the room he shared with other classmates.

In Italy during school trips the students are under the responsibility of the teachers who accompany them. The teachers, who are already angry at the State school reform enacted by the Government, are less and less willing to organize school trips, for which they receive no special indemnity.
