Parents Head To Court Over School Bus Cuts

NEW YORK (CBS 2) — The battle over school bus service cuts in the Big Apple was headed to court Monday.

Budget cuts forced the Department of Education to eliminate bus service this year for about 5,000 public school students, mostly on Staten Island and in parts of Queens and Brooklyn.

Parents have already held protests against the cuts, and they were to argue the loss of service was putting their children’s lives in danger.

    No person should suffer the pangs of hunger or be deprived of quality and affordable housing, we are our brothers keepers and no person is too heavy to carry. But due to the inability of the US economy to support all of its citizens, there will be suffering in a once prosperous nation, and as much as we love our brothers and sisters it has now become impossible to carry the burden of the less than fortunate.
