If the city really cared about reducing emissions of school buses, they should drop the idea of busing white kids into black neighborhoods and vice-versa in an attempt to ease race relations. I grew up in Belmont, only a 7 block (1/2 mile) walk to Clark. Did I go to Clark? No. I got bused to Jackson-Via, 2 miles away.

So how did the kids get to Central Battery Specialists? By car? So it was a hybrid car ride/walk to school day? How about giving the parents of the kids who don't use the school bus a tax rebate?

that's nice! but ...

whenever I've asked County planners, VDOT, and others to ensure in their plans that school children could have walk/bike paths to safely get to schools ...

... they do nothing!

So why have this special day for a few privileged children who can walk/bike to school? What about the County schools?
