For all those who haven't bothered to look at the actual policy, consider yourself educated:

Modern American parenting, take care of my kids because I'm too busy to do it myself. It's the school's responsibility, it's the taxpayer's responsibility, it's everyone's but my responsibility.
I worked and arranged to get my kids to and from school safely, and we lived inside the 1 mile limit (that has been the norm for a long time, contrary to what others have said.) I'm still busy teaching my kids to accept responsibility for their own actions, I don't have the time to accept responsibility for yours, that's your job. You signed up for it when you had them, now do it and quit complaining because no one's there to do it for you.

Why not allow the TAX PAYERS kids to ride the bus and the welfare scum can walk! If you don't have a job then get up and walk your child to school. All tax payers regardless of distance should be able to ride the bus! The scum have enough energy to walk up and down main street all day. Why not walk their kids to school! For the working class, your child gets bused because YOU WORK! This should be a "perk" of working and paying taxes!

They don't pay school and land tax if they don't own property,they are leaches and drunks in my book,and they breath MY OXYGEN,and I do pay taxes,AND have a full time job,and have NEVER RECIEVED A RED CENT FROM any freakin hand out program.,Welfare rats can't work because of some reason or another,but they can push baby carrages up and down main street all day.Next year when the fair comes to town,on derby night,walk around the track and see how welfare rats and people on perminant disability are driving in the derby,still can't figure that one out!!

AMEN!!! Well written. And my feelings exactly! I swear they take EBT cards at the fair stands! It is discusting and I am tired of paying for their hand outs when my child can't even ride the freakin school bus! The one damn thing and I pay taxes! Village Residents pay high school taxes and Village Taxes for that fact. My spouce is a disabled Combat Vet and we get a slight discount and it is still outragious! Try to better ourselves in life when the scum just get better and we get poorer. I say make the scum bags get off their lazy cans and walk all the kids to school. And just to clarify....I am saying the welfare bums who suck off the system and NO ONE else!

To clarify one point,I am in no way throwing stones @ people on disability by any means,but if someone is disabled to the point that they can't work,then I do not think driving a derby car is the place to be!

The frustration with the welfare abusers is going to continue to escalate as the working class have to be content with being bled out while the welfare are still smoking, getting tattoos and reproducing.

They know that the key to prosperity for them is to keep making more babies. More babies mean more food stamps, more rental allowance and more cash assistance, and of course the free health care is always in place for them.

They are taught this from a very young age and it becomes a trade for them to survive like any other trade a person might do to survive.

I've got one of those cases right down the road from me. I have seen him regularly pick up a 200 lb item but when he hears a car coming he fake limps until they are out of sight.

With regards to the whole busing policy, this is what makes me sick....I heard a story about a father whose custodial rights were taken away. He now has his rights back and attempts to care for his kids. He works...finally (for now). But, he is too lazy to go and walk and pick them up. He is trying to have the state fight to get them bused. He gets out of work before pick up time and is more than capiable. The man thinks the system owes him something. I shouldn't complain because he finally has a job. But, gets everything else for free because of the number of kids he has...free rent, food, heat, you name it! Tax payers even pay for on occasion babysitter on the weekends when he needs a break. The list of services goes on and on.

I would pay for my child to be bused. I think something has to give overall. Tax payers shouldn't pay more and more. Especially when a lot don't even have a child in school anymore. My idea is have a fee like school lunches. If I choose to have the bus pick up my child then I should pay for it. We pay for school lunches at $2.10. When you don't want to pay for the lunches then you pack your child's lunch. If you don't want to pay then drive your child yourself or walk. Just an idea. There is reduced and free lunches for income eligible. Again we would be paying for some of the bums (the ones who truely choose not to work and suck off the system). But, we are anyway at this point and it makes me nautious. Just an idea that might cut costs. If the school charged $2 per child per ride, the funding might add up and we just might get out of the red. I would be more than willing to pay this! I have 3 children. It would cost me $12 per day. But, worth every penny.

You're willing to pay $60/week or about $2400/year? I honestly doubt it. You'd start yelling about the cost. How about the farm hand or retail clerk, who's just barely making enough money to live on and lives in a rental property, and lives out of town, now has to pay $10.00 a week to have his kids transported? How about the laid off construction worker or disabled person who doesn't have $10/week to have his kids transported? Would you have different rates depending on how far you live from a school? Could you take the bus when you wanted, or would you have to commit to it at the beginning of the year? Would you have to pay if the bus stops, but your kid doesn't get on?

You're also forgetting that tyransportation is state mandated once you are a certain distance away. The only people who would be paying are those in the "walker" zone.

A set rate! And I pay for my kids lunches or they pack a lunch. And they give the kids cheese sandwiches if someone rakes up over $10 in lunch charges. There is an application for lunches. Yes I would pay! Reduced rates for low income or free for ones who can't afford it....just like school lunches. Trying to solve a problem and you will disagree at all costs! lol kinda funny! People pay tuition at Holy Family or they work it off or they are low income and apply. It is an idea for charging for bus trips.

Not disagreeing (more of your self-centeredness showing up), I'm pointing out some of the practical, logistical, and philosophical problems with your plan. But, as usual, it's all about you: because you'd pay, your idea should be the policy.
