WAVE-3.com reports that when school starts up again in Jefferson County schools on August 15th, some students will still face excessively long bus rides – over an hour one way – even though all kids there live much closer to a suitable school.
By the close of last year’s school term, those long hours on the bus were turning into the inevitable mayhem, with fights and disruptions a virtual daily occurrence.
Why is the learning curve for the people running this school district so shallow?
Meanwhile, the Courier-Journal is justifiably upset about the school board hiding a busing plan that might have cut down on the excesses. The paper has published two separate related editorials since this story broke on August 3, the first editorial ran on August 6 and the second on August 10.
