Fix the school bus problems

From Paul Tony Tull


My children have rode the bully bus for more than 10 years. Now I have grandchildren who ride the bully bus.

Some kids need medication to endure the 10 minute ride. Although, the bus sits at the middle school for 30 minutes loading. Bus No. 30 has never had cameras. They need a full-time person to assist the driver as well.

The biggest problem is the bus has way too many students every day. We have phone cameras showing three adult students seated together. Even when bus superintendent Bob Beatty has been known to ride, the bus was still too full and kids still misbehave and are written up.

School employees who work full time end up subbing to also drive the bus. We must solve the problem.
