Tales from Back to School

In Orange County, FL, middle schoolers can take the bus if they live more than 2 miles from school. In past years, extra capacity and non-enforcement meant even those who lived closer than 2 miles got a seat. This year many of those same students took the bus for a week, but were later told they lived too close and would no longer get a ride. Parents are up in arms mostly due to the lack of notification of the change. The county says budget cuts mean fewer buses and the cutting of bus stops. Parents are now scrambling to set up carpools. I guess they feel that it’s too far or too unsafe to walk.
