well if they aren't gonna provide transportation then the state has no say or punish us for not getting them to school so they want to stop having the responsiblity, then back off how we raise them, and if they would cut these teacher aides that they have and make the teachers pay attention ot the class instead of gossiping or internet emails they would be able to handle their class. i also think when kennett buys an 4000 desk just for the principle is outragesous when i seen the receipt, they are putting money where it doesn't belong, you know, quit taking away from the kids, they can go walmart or freds and buy an cheap one my gosh, look at all the papers they throw away and stuff in trash. things need to be cut elsewhere thank you at all schools , not whats for th ekids

Bus transportation has always been a privilege. That's how they van kick the kids off buses if they get into trouble. They do not have to provide transportation.

Make the kids walk to school like we had to. I walked 5 miles to go to school and 5 miles to get home.

The only ones who cut and combined bus runs were Senath-Hornersville & Southland.

There was a state law that said nobody could ride if they lived within a mile from the school campus they attended.

I bet guest votes Democrat..if they vote at all....in other words...it is always someone else's fault and responsibility.

That is such a DA statement about not getting kids to school...idiot...do you not want your kids to go to school? Are you sending them just because it is a law?

How do you know so much about the aides and the teachers?

You don't...you just do not like them because your kids act ignorant at school and get in trouble and have trouble making grades and instead of looking at the real cause and taking responsiblity...you blame someone.

Hope you do not vote...because if you do....it will be a sure vote for the liberal Dems who have taught us that we are all owed happiness.

Some people are so stupid....thank goodness you have people on here like Mr. Anderson, Apostle, and White Trash that are actually intelligent and make sense.....but they are in a minority.

Not enough kids in Rives and Hermondale to run two buses...what do you want...a bus for every student?

Did not think there were any kids in Hermondale anymore.

if senath-hville would cut back on the number of custodians in our school system...several who just show up for a pay check because they "know things on certain school officials" and use this as job security and milk our schools payroll,,,then we could afford to bus all the kids to school....
