Raleigh, NC County Schools Reverse Busing Law: LA Times: RT @filterednews #news #usnews http://bit.ly/94HIpzGood for them! It was always a dumb idea. Fortunately, busing began after I was out of school, but the baby in the family got caught in it when he was still a tiny little kid. Years later he described how traumatizing it was, having to ride a bus for 2 hours every day (1 hour there & back), to a strange neighborhood way across town. He said it repeatedly stressed & freaked him out every single day. At 40 years old he could still recall every fear-struck emotion. The whole stupid busing idea is for the benefit of adults to appease THEIR misguided needs. But whoever cares or asks the little kids their feelings? You want to bus the high school kids, go ahead, they are older & can handle it. But leave the little tots near home where there is the sense of safety, family, & familiarity.
