The current Jefferson County Board of Education seems adamant – they are going to continue busing for integration no matter what. But the consequences from this bull-headedness are getting awfully extensive, as a recent, very serious bus accident just re-emphasized.
From the adverse impact on learning, to the increased accident potential, to the nearly 9,000-a-year incidents of misbehavior on the district’s buses, the impacts of wildly excessive busing for integration in Louisville get more and more disturbing every year.
And, the lack of imagination on how to creatively deal with those long bus rides – if the city must have them – is becoming equally apparent.
In a district that buses an incredible 70,000 students out of an enrollment of 100,000, the latest move – spending $2 million to install spy cameras on the buses – exposes more of a prison rather than education oriented thinking.
