Mumbai: Kids packed like sardines, yet parents prefer private school vans

from Mid-Day

While the weight of their school bags continues to burden students in the city, they are facing another problem: the vans that ferry them to and from school. Private vans continue to violate norms by packing in students like sardines in their vehicles. But parents are still okay with this arrangement, as they feel more assured of the security of their wards inside these vans rather than the buses authorized by the school. As for the higher number of children in vans, school authorities have passed the buck to parents, while van operators claim they cannot run services with just a few students. If they do so, they will have to charge higher prices which a majority of parents are unwilling to pay. more
