What are you fighting for? Teachers' kids are getting bussed from one school to another. Do you want your kids bussed to a certain school? If so, then it would be fair to allow that. Do you want your kids to be bussed home? That is a different issue than what the teachers are getting.
I'll repeat what I said before: This might be a courtesy to keep teachers working longer. If you "win" and make teachers' kids walk, then many teachers will choose to leave as soon as possible to get their kids. Perhaps a little "unfairness" will enable more students to be helped and the taxpayers to get more value out of their teachers.
I'm sure they will get a lot of work done with their kid running around!

Guess what folks...nothing you can do about it. You might want to focus your attention somewhere else...like on your own kids.

Actually, in the PM, many kids get bussed to other schools, if their PM destination is different than their AM pick up point. So, maybe, someone is misinterpreting what they're seeing?

Get over it people LIFE IS NOT FAIR!!! OMG Some jobs come with perks, Some people get hired because they are a family friend to the boss, Some kids get picked for the team because of their lastname. GET OVER IT, put on your big boy/girl panties and find a way to get your kid to school since you feel walking is so unsafe. Be it doing it yourself, getting a grandparent, friend or family member. Create a group of you guys to patrol the areas and or walk the smaller kids to school. If you spent half the time that you do on here trying to find answers instead I am sure you can figure it out
I agree , that child should not be bussed to the parent teacher.We have given in too many times to the over paid teaching staff . they just keep slipping in these little things to the point where it gets expensive, and shows disrespect for the people that the school is there for to begin with.If only they could be made to do things the same as it was in the 1800's , the teachers and school officials would have more respect for the people that give them their pay check AND benifits. the way everyone else is being treated at the preasant, all of what they get now should be cut in half. Over half of them that work there does not do their job nor tries to . Its for their personal use that they are there. they get together like a big family business and to hell with everyone else.
they have rooms for the children to stay in till the parents pick them up . Its called latch key.

I believe it is a professio nal courtesy so teachers can stay in their classrooms longer to work and help struggling students. The alternative is for teachers to rush out as soon as they can to get their kids. Once they are out, will they come back to help kids? Isn't it worth it to get more work out of those teachers?
professional courtesy??? they can have there kids go to latchkey or daycare until they are totally done with their work like the rest of the working people do.

Being bullied is a whole lot different than having to walk to school.

"Over paid teachers"? What a joke! I love the constant teacher bashing that goes on between ignorant fools. They make what someone who went to school for 5-6 years, and has accumulated tens of thousands of student loans deserves to make. Jealous much? Go to school, become a teacher and spend all of your time dealing with idiot parents telling you that you are overpaid and aren't doing anything for their children. The same children that you spend hours a day with tring to help. You couldn't pay me enough!

I know several teachers that have their children bussed from the school they attend, to the school that they work at. They don't live right in the village and the kids would ride the bus anyway. The bus they are getting on is going to the school the parent works at anyway. It just makes sense. It isn't an extra privilege that "you the taxpayer" are paying for. It isn't costing anyone anything. We are talking about common sense. The bus is going from point A to point B anyway, and has nothing to do with fairness. These children would be on the bus anyway, but intead of being dropped off at home they are being dropped off at a different school that the bus will be stopping at anyway.

I agree that children as young as first grade should not be walking. It's a different time now than it was when we were children. That's the point you should be arguing.

Good post, I thought it was somthing simple.

Now can't Malone pass a law that says perverts can't be house on school bus routes or live within 5 miles of any school? Can you do that?
Becouse it real starting to look like the perverts have more right's then the people who do what right and don't break the law.

I am sure there will be plenty of parents making fools of themselves this evening. Unfortunately, I am unable to be there. I would love to take a count to see how many people actually need their child picked up by the bus for a legitimate reason or how many are simply too lazy to want to deal with the situation. I am sure there are unique situations, but I am willing to bet the majority of households have at least 1 adult that is able to bring the child to school because they don't have to be at work prior to 7:00 a.m.

The procedure has always been that any employee who has children in another building can have their child dropped off where they work. It must be approved by the principal and the employee must still complete their job duties and be sure that the children are not left alone. In one building the staff hired a student to sit with the children until the parent came. No hassle even good energy saved because it saves at least one trip to another building or mutliple buildings by the parent (pick child at Davis and MS. Principals can remove permission if there are problems with the parent not getting work done. Doesn't cost anyone a cent.

What a nasty bunch of spoilt little brats your generation is. You wasted your time in school and now lack an education. Then you think you are clever because you have figured out how to procreate.......and now you want everyone else to take responsibility for your children.......who will end up just like you........

As far as the teachers' children being bused to their parents, and not being a teacher or related in any way to them but simply an aging taxpayer, I believe it to be a sensible and reasonable decision.

What a cynical bunch of underachievers your generation is . The same generation that put gas at $4.20 per gallon today and the same generation that knocked the United States out of supremacy years ago.

Malonian, when you learn that the crutch of your pants is not supposed to be at the level of your knees, and wearing your hat backwards is not cool, I will think about talking to you!
