WHAT CAN YOU TELL US SO FAR?>>IMAGINE THE CHAOS, THE SCRAMBLE FOR PARENTS, GETTING THEIR CHILDREN SAFELY TO SCHOOL THIS MORNING BECAUSE WHILE IT’S GOING ON, IT’S IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT SCHOOL IS NOT DELAYED, AND SCHOOL IS NOT CANCELED WITHIN IPS. HERE NOW IS THAT TWEET THAT IPS OFFICIALS PUT OUT JUST A SHORT TIME AGO. IT SAYS, IN PART, “DUE TO DRIVER CALLOFFS, WE ARE UNABLE TO RUN THE REGULAR SCHOOL BUTT ROUTES IN A SAFE AND EFFICIENT MANNER TODAY, SCHOOLS REMAIN OPEN, AND THOSE UNABLE TO ATTEND WILL BE NOT BE MARKED ABSENT.” THIS IMPACTS 70 SCHOOL WITHIN THE DISTRICT, AND MORE INFORMATION SHOWS IT IMPACTS A LOT OF PEOPLE, 25,000 CHILDREN, IN FACT, ALONG WITH 300 BUS ROUTES, AND 135 DRIVERS AND ATTENDANTS.

    Underpay and mistreat the drivers, spend 3 trillion a year in this country yet schools cant even pay bus drivers a decent wage and treat them like humans. Truck drivers and bus drivera keep this country moving. Maybe some respect and good pay is in order. Buses dont drive themselves.
