Comments for: RSU 3 to drop to one bus run from two

    This will be rough on the little ones. My nephew has to be on the bus at 6am. He gets home at 3.30pm. He ADHD. This is a killer for him already. The school isn’t thinking of the 5-7 or older children that will do poor in class or even pass out during the day due to be over tired. I guess compassion is overrated now a days.

      schools have to make hard choices these days.  $140K in savings would be several teachers (as an example).

      Some states don’t bus children at all (or they do it for a fee)…think about it.

    Though one room, district school houses had their obvious inefficiencies, it’s plain, as we go forward in time, that overly consolidated schools have their problems too.

    I wonder how bus transportation will be done when diesel is $20 a gallon?  Maybe we’ll have natural gas powered buses (for those districts that have natural gas service.) But transportation is only one aspect of super consolidation too.
