A2: School Transportation

On the World Socialist Web Site, Naomi Spencer writes about the proposed consolidation of transportation among school districts in Washtenaw County, and what that means for bus drivers and other transportation workers. She also discusses the funding implications of the decision: “The unions – like the school boards, the Obama administration and the Democratic and Republican Parties – accept as a fact the claim that there is ‘no money’ for public education, and that the working class must pay for the bankruptcy of the school districts. In reality, there is ample money for education, but it is a question of what class controls it.” [Source]
