Booster Seat Question

When I asked whether the children are put in booster seats for the ride, the teacher said no, as it is not required by law. (In Ga., where I live, booster seats are only requiredup to the age of 4.) I told her my son rides in a booster seat at all times, and that is what he is used to. Could I bring his seat to the school for the morning of these trips? She again said no, as it would cause a problem with the other children, who would not have them.
Based on this, should I allow my son to go without his booster seat, just a seatbelt, for these trips, (which, to the best of my knowledge, will occur several times throughout the school year), or should I not allow him to go at all? I would offer to take him myself, but this would not be feasible, as I have two younger children at home who nap during their usual field trip times. I do not want him riding without a booster seat, regardless of the law, but I do not want him to miss an enriching experience with his class, or to be picked on or feel left out because of my decision. --->Dawn
