WHY DODDS SCHOOLS ARE BETTER THAN STATESIDE SCHOOLS

By Galen Kelley

Was just thinking fondly of my favorite school field trip. Dr. Lesley, my history teacher, let us out exploring Augsburg in small groups without supervision. He arranged items for us to pick up to prove we had navigated to the right place. Went to the city wall, the cathedral, and we were supposed to go to the Golden Stag Restaurant. Unbeknownst to Dr. Lesley, the Golden Stag strip joint had opened up near the restaurant.

My group went to it first and we were wondering why a fancy restaurant was in a basement. At 8-9 in the morning, German strip clubs are going full blast. It was quite educational. lol After a couple of groups, they posted a bouncer at the door to ensure no more 7th graders came in. Then you come back to the States where school campuses are closed and you have to adjust to not having the same freedom.
