Should ... ?

Recommended Posts

I'd rather they pay discount than have my council tax go completely on school buses.

 

It is a bit of an odd one this. In theory students should live within close proximity of their school. If they don't and travel a resonable distance, then I believe there should be some parental responsibility for financing their travel to school - unless it is a rural area in which case there may be little choice but to travel a long way.

You know my feelings on this one, Young Urch !

 

If God had intended for you to have free travel to school, he'd have given you wheels instead of legs !

the cost of transporting kids to and from school by bus is huge. My daughter is in a wheelchair and, as such, is bused by the local authority to and from school. This service costs a fortune to run so if it was extended to all kids then council tax rises would be massive.

Education to age 16 is compulsory, you have no choice, the state has decreed it. Therefore, any pupil (sorry but schoolkids are pupils. not students) living more than a certain distance (say 3 miles?) from the allocated state school should receive a free bus pass - as I did.

 

However, should the parents choose to send their child to a particular school, whether for religious reasons or if they believe one school is better than another, then they should pay the entire travel costs themselves.

I think that is pretty much my argument Mr Invisible. And in terms of the pupils/students debate, the given in the education industry is that kids up to the end of Year 9 (up to 14) are pupils and kids from Year 10 up (14+) are students. Don't really know why but that is what I live by in the reports I write

Public transport for kids to go to school. Now there's a plan that the motor trade of 4x4 will hate as sales would plumit! <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> Mum's not able to take little Jessica to school five minutes up the road in her 4x4, whatever next! Madness <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Whatever it takes to get p*xy women drivers off the road doing "the school (or college) run" at 8:30 in the morning is good in my book.

 

Let then have it for free.....just get the bloody women off the roads !!!

Ask them why they drive a 4x4 & invariably the answer you get back is "I am sitting higher up & can see better plus I feel safer. When they are all driving 4x4's what is next a bl**dy chieftan tank.

You are of course dead right,

and I am showing my age again.

But in my defence I picked the Chieftan as you can actually get driving lessons on/in it from an off road driving school down near Winchester for about £175.
