Speak out: School bus fees cause controversy

from The Anniston Star

Transportation costs consume a large portion of a school district's annual budget. Many school districts are facing budgetary shortfalls. Therefore, some have begun to charge students a fee to ride the big yellow school buses. However, this does not come without controversy. A vast majority of parents do not agree with charging students to ride school buses. The fee is considered unconstitutional in some states. Therefore, some state legislatures have begun to pass laws that allow public school systems to charge for student transportation. A few school systems have opted to outsource student transportation to private agencies. These agencies can lawfully charge a fee to transport students. more
