Some Durham Public Schools employees recently took an foreign field trip of sorts to better understand their students.
The trip to Guanajuato, Mexico was aimed at immersing employees for a week in the culture of an area where some Durham students and their families once lived.
The trips, organized and paid for through Duke University, have been taking place each year since 2006.
This year’s trip came as the Hispanic population hit a major milestone in Durham County.
Hispanic students now make up the second largest ethnic group in the school system.
