School's out, but the buses keep on running
from The Saratogian
They are taken for granted by many, those who ride them and those who see them pass by. The big yellow school buses lumbering down county roads stop every so often to either pick up or drop off school students. From September to June they are a part of many people's daily commute. Then they seemingly vanish only to reappear two months later like a heavily tanned vacationer returning from a cruise. One hardly thinks about them until a school budget vote includes a proposition for new replacements and the price tag makes one took twice. But just as teachers and administrators are integral parts of any school district, the transportation department and the people in them are a vital if unnoticed cog in the educational wheel.
