Don't like long bus rides?

Posted By on Wed, May 17, 2006 at 6:15 AM

Move closer to school. It's the suggestion from a state transportation official in this look by Stephens Media at the Asa Hutchinson-induced hysteria over closure of the inefficient, inadequate Paron High School. It also happens that no state has fixed rules on bus rides, just some suggested limits that are unavoidably unattainable for some rural areas all across the U.S. Moreover, a long bus ride does not equal a lack of adequate education. And do you have any idea how many schools you'd have to build if bus rides were the cornerstone of the definition of equal education?
