Steamboat Springs It's about time the situation on the school buses is addressed. I write this editorial in frustration because of the letter request that volunteers ride the school buses with the children. This situation has been going on for years - fights, inappropriate language, fires, sexual promiscuity, etc. My child is in the first grade and does not ride the bus because of this situation. It's about time something is done! Time to pay for escorts and use the cameras on the buses. Let's put our tax dollars to good use and protect our children. If this has been going on for years, why hasn't something been done?
Either get something done or start reimbursing parents who choose to drive their children for safety reasons. I think when I file my taxes, I'll deduct the gas cost of driving my children to school.
