In Ohio, ex-mechanic keeps school buses in gear
from Education Week
In 2010, the 51,000-student Columbus, Ohio, school district considered cutting busing of high school students as a money-saving measure, just as most of the other large districts in the state had done. But the state's biggest district managed to come up with a creative solution: Instead of doing away with busing for older students altogether, Columbus eliminated most neighborhood bus stops and used neighborhood schools as centralized stops for older students. "Doing away with the service is doing a disservice to our students," said Steve A. Simmons III, who came up with the idea.
