Children who take the school bus have fewer absences
from The Brookings Institution
Taking that big yellow bus to school has been part of American education since the early 20th century. And at its core, taking the school bus does something very fundamental — it physically brings students to school each and every morning. In fact, the school bus whisks about 25 million public school students per year to school. Yet, prior to my new study in Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, we had little evidence on whether taking the school bus to school (i.e., getting to school) was linked to whether students show up more often to school (i.e., going to school).
