Gas prices, economic downturn have forced districts to cut costs this school year. In North Royalton, Ohio, cars flood high school; some kids walking in pre-dawn snow. Death toll among students not using school buses almost 40 times higher Principal says safety a top priority, but "What else are we going to do?" Now not only do we not pay teachers enough, kids are being put in harms way. What would your solution be?

I think that the tax payers should be willing to pony up with more money to provide adequate bus service. Pre-dawn walks to school in the cold are just not a good thing for the kids. There are too many nasty stories which can be spawned by a circumstance like this.

Sounds like parents need to band together and take the kids to school like one parent picks up a car full along the way so they will be safe or maybe a community band together and see about getting a used van and picking up as many kids as possible. There has to be a solution. If it is that dangerous for kids to get harmed then something seriously needs to be done. People will have to take it into their own hands to prevent the children from getting harmed. They either need to drive or walk the children or make sure that a adult or two is walking with them..can pick them up as they pass their house when walking or driving. The kids is the future we have to keep them safe.

Who knows anymore. It is all such a mess right now. The government seems to look over the things that matter most to the civilians of the U.S. They do not know how to put priorities in line anymore. I hope it changes soon. Children should come first.

I can't believe that cutting out buses is even an option for schools. We live in a rural community, so cutting out buses is not really an option here. We live 9 miles from my son's school.
