South Carolina Bill Would Give School Districts Control of School Buses

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.
