That is what I got out of it. I know I learned things on the bus that I shouldn't have.Perhaps the cartoonist is trying to say that traditional schools may present facts, etc., but that children get exposed to more than parents may want them to while on the bus (ie. sex, drugs, etc.)? I get this from the learn being emphasized, followed by "the facts of life".
In some of the less populated places in my state (we have 3 of the 5 least populated counties I think) pretty much everyone is bused. I'm talking like 20 kids for dozens of miles. The bus rides take hours, but the parents are farmers and don't have the time to drive to school and back twice a day. I think there's a law that says busing must be made available.Most either got a ride (not that many, maybe 20%) or caught public transport.
They don't, but they do it anyway. Then they go on strike for the first two weeks of the schoolyear every couple years to ask for more money for teachers.Wow, how do your schools afford it? Ours are strapped for cash as it is. They are the ones paying for it, right?
