Student Transportation & Safety: The middle school balancing act
from Wicked Local Lexington
The most influential piece of the school transportation pie has shifted to that with the lowest number of students. Middle schools embody the new balancing fulcrum on the school transportation scale as they drive the flexibility of a tiered bus system — in Lexington, Mass., 57 percent of all middle school students ride the bus compared to 42 percent of elementary students and 26 percent of high schoolers. Reasons for the uptick in middle school ridership are many.
