School District Paying Parents $1,000

School districts around the country are having a hard time finding bus drivers. This is leaving schools and parents in a pickle. The solution coming out has been to just pay parents to bring their kids to school themselves. Except, some school districts are actually PAYING the parents to bring their own kids to school.

In Chicago, the district is paying parents $100 a day to drop off and pick up their kids. That’s $500 a week. They will get that amount for the first 2 weeks of school since this was a last minute change and then it will drop to $500 per month.

Another district in Baltimore is offering parents $250 per month per child. Many others are starting to do the same. The reason is the lack of bus drivers.

But it goes deeper than that. The school system only gets paid based on how many students it has attending and on the rolls. If lots of students aren’t attending, their funding drops.

The question is, how much is it really costing JUST getting kids to school? Is the cost of the bus, bus maintenance, driver salaries, fuel, insurance, etc. so much that offering $500 per kid per month makes sense?

A mini-van can hold 8 passengers. Load up just one van with 8 kids to take to school and back, and you can make an extra $4,000 a month during the school year.

It’s no wonder the the cost of public school is an ever increasing cost to American’s that shoulder the cost in their taxes.

I would love to see the school districts privatize the school bus program. It has been a festering waste for too long. Private companies will bring lots of savings (even though the districts will just pocket the difference anyways so no savings will go on to tax payers).

Unions prioritize bus driver’s over all other support personnel – different work rules, different salaries, etc.,
