He has a problem with school bus changes in Montgomery County
I read your column on the school “dues” and agree. There are many who don’t have the money to pay them.
I am having an issue with Montgomery County Schools concerning bus routes. Beginning this year, buses will no longer run onto many dead end rural roads. Kids in elementary schools will be required to walk up to three tenths of a mile, while middle school and high school kids will have to walk up to a half a mile.
My grand-daughter catches the bus at my house; the road to my house is a dead end road, measured at four tenths of a mile. Next year she will be in middle school, which means she will have to walk to the intersection, four tenths of a mile, to catch the bus at 6:25 a.m.
She will be 10 years old. I have a problem sending a 10 year old girl out that way. The policy was passed to save money. I am more interested in saving our kids from who knows what!
Keep up the good work. We do have some very good school systems around, but they all have some questionable policies we need to correct.
