Living out of state for a while, we don't have this problem here in New Albany Ohio. We have one large central campus with K-1, 2-5, middle, and high school (beautiful) buildings. Staggered start times, and 40 or so buses that make 2 rounds in the a.m. and 2 @ end of day.

Zero traffic congestion at bell times, no related safety issues for the few parents needing to drive their kids. And an extensive community trail system with tunnels under busy roads. I should research it, but not sure why CA doesn't invest in Buses for public schools. No traffic, less pollution, kids arrive to school on time, organized, and calm. It's a no brainer.

That's right, stick it to the middle class.
