I remember when the Baton Rouge school bus drivers were demanding raises back in the 1980's when the teachers were getting raises. Their leader actually said bus drivers were more important to education than teachers because without busing the students wouldn't get to school, and bus drivers deserved raises before teachers. You had to wonder what job skills someone with that sort of logic possessed.

re: Now School Bus Drivers Are Striking for More Pay(Posted by Tim on 1/16/13 at 10:55 pm to CamdenTiger)
It's funny, I was having a conversation with my oldest daughter today in regard to seeing several school buses leave the school with 2-3 students in each one. She says, "That's a waste of money". I agreed and told her if I was Superintendent, the first thing I would do is eliminate this dinosaur. Parents can pay for cell phones, cable, drive to bars, etc., but they can't bring their kids to school? It's an expense that should disappear.
