Well...maybe if your kid took care of business during the regular year, you wouldn't be in this predicament. Typical Romans...want EVERYTHING handed to them, because "we pay so much in taxes!" It's summer time. It's YOUR responsibility to get your kid to and from any "additional" schooling he or she may need. I'm glad my tax dollars aren't going to summer transportation for kids (and their parents) who couldn't make the grade during the school year. Time to step up your parenting Mom!!

Ok "stungray"... Some students need to attend school year round..including summer. They have individualized education plans that are in place because they show regression in academics, behaviors etc while not attending school. It is not attributed to laziness or lack of making the grade. This should be covered for some students, for example, special education students...kids with autism, downs, add, adhd, and other learning disabilities. Please dont generalize as students who attend summer school as being lazy. This is not always the case!

Look...I wasn't trying to "generalize" I also understand kids with disabilities, whatever it may be, need special attention. My gripe is this... The original poster makes a statement regarding "all the tax money they pay"... guess what...we all do! If one of my kids needed special education because of a medical issue, I WOULD NEVER make it somebody else's responsibility to get my kid to and from the "extra" care/school they need. That...is the parents responsibility!

BTW...my wife being a Rome teacher, I know first hand the MAJORITY of the kids in summer school programs, are in fact lazy, undisciplined kids, who will most likely grow up being just like their lazy, undisciplined parents.
