Missouri takes districts for a bumpy ride when it comes to bus funds
from St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Missouri has slowed its roll in recent years when it comes to funding school transportation costs. Less money is available for all districts — and school buses can take a beating, especially in rural areas where gravel roads and potholes are common. But problems aren't limited to rural districts. In 2004, St. Louis Public Schools received $12.2 million from the state. This year the district received $4.3 million, said Patrick Wallace, district spokesman. The district contracts its bus service out to First Student.
