My wife was talking to a friend of hers who gets paid by the school district her son attends to bring the boy to school because, given where they live, it would be inconvenient to provide bus service to where they live. We worked out the numbers, and my best guess is that she’s paid about the average cost of of transporting a pupil to school. The family isn’t poor and the child isn’t disabled. I’m all in favor of giving everyone a fair chance in life, but let this be a reminder – sometimes when the far right is railing against something, they have a point.
