I wasn’t aware that school districts were not in control of their own bus systems already. Who thought of that nightmare to have the state in charge? Now there is a bill introduced to turn that responsibility over to school districts or to private companies if the school district so chooses.
Kudos to State Representative Jim Merrill (R-Charleston) who recognized that it is asinine for the state to run all of the school buses. I know this isn’t exactly education policy, but it is an example of overreach at the state level as it relates to the public school system.
