Stories of chaos and inexplicable stupidity continue to unfold as New York City parents try to make sense of a new school busing plan.
After a lead-in like that, who can resist reading the rest?
In one case – a 7-year-old Queens girl can take the school bus, but her five-year-old sister, who goes to the same school can not.
In another story a ten-year-old girl from Brooklyn might be forced to leave her gifted program because she lost her bus seat and her parents don’t want her riding the subway alone.
In a third story, a Staten Island second-grader is expected to walk along a street without sidewalks and then take three different city buses to get to school.
