A number of middle schools in Beijing have already developed study tours that cover Jiangsu pro

“It’s a good complement to closed-classroom education.”
The education systems of many developed countries have schools that encourage study tours.
In Japan, numerous schools have well-established study tours fo

However, Zhang cautions that it has to be voluntary on the students’ part and parents sh
ould choose products based on their children’s interests and the family’s financial circumstances.
