Transportation disparities put many students walking to school on dangerous path
from Akron Bacon Journal
Education and transportation options are not equal in Ohio. Bus transportation is seen as essential for charter schools but cost-cutting makes it impractical for many public schoolchildren. Academically, Akron schools are rated "Continuous Improvement" or what amounts to a C grade. Strapped for funds, the district offers the state minimum for busing. That means students living within two miles of their school must walk. It's not the same for students attending charter school or wealthy suburban districts with big tax bases.
