The Deerfield Academy is an elite, private school program in Massachussets. Students have the opportunity to pursue travel abroad programs – in fact, an extensive list of programs and destinations – every year:
Our travel programs offer students an opportunity to develop the skills and attitudes essential to global citizenship. By challenging students to consider new perspectives and different cultures, these trips seek to integrate a Deerfield education with the shifting realities of the wider world. Led by experienced Deerfield faculty, these programs also allow students to deepen their relationships with the faculty leaders and their fellow travelers. Students return to campus with new perspectives and a broadened world view that prepares them for college and beyond.

It is now critical for career success that Americans develop global skills.
Of course, this is now in direct conflict with “climate change” initiatives that think we should all stay locked up at home, riding bicycles and only walking (those are not sustainable solutions and they will lead to worse outcomes while doing little for climate). This is a conflict that is not being resolved. Historically, trade and travel has led to greater innovations, greater improvements in efficiency, and greater improvements in the human condition. If we shut it off, we all suffer.
