A quarter of Dutch school trips abroad no longer include destinations that have been hit by terrorist attacks, a new poll says.
Educational research bureau DUO polled 200 secondary schools and over two thirds of the respondents expressed doubts about the safety of such trips. Many schools have scrapped London, Paris and Berlin as destinations and are favouring smaller cities, like Valencia or Glasgow. Some schools are avoiding all European capitals.
A small number of schools said they are abolishing trips abroad altogether, not because of terrorism but because of the risks involved in sending teachers abroad with a group of teenagers.
