When our kids were in middle school, they had the opportunity to visit the east coast, Wash DC on educational trips; in EVERY case, the school used a travel agency, experienced in group travel for kids, who worked such details to prevent such outcomes. The subject situation is unfortunate, but this is what happens when well meaning people take on tasks and responsibilities they do not understand.

Sounds like this entire trip was an accident waiting to happen, fortunate that they were stuck at LAX, within driving distance of their parents, rather than an undesirable area of DC, without the sophistication, resources to prevent something much worse from occuring.
