Charter school bussing

So there is a news story about a mom in McKeesport who sends her kids to a charter school and is complaining that the school district is not providing a bus for her two kids even though it is a 1.3 mile walk. The kids are 5 and 8.

Yes, I agree - kids that age should not have to walk that far alone. The mom says she and her husband are too busy with work/school to walk with them.

Well, maybe send your kid to the public school and the kids could get bussed? Or pay to send them to a closer private school?

You chose to send your kids to something different, for whatever reason....your choice, your responsibility to get them there.

My kids go to the public schools and they are GREAT.

It is bad enough that charter schools are taking money out of the public school budget......the parents who choose that route should have to give up something to do it.....like make time to get your kids to the special school.

I am tired of the entitlement attitudes.....and the lack of support for our public schools. Your kid may not do well in public schools because or YOUR teachings/support (or lack thereof)...why do MY tax dollars have to pay for YOU to have that choice? That should be on YOU.

The district school buses should be for the district schools...not these charter schools that are simply in it to make $$$$$.
