The Bell Rings and Prince George’s County Fails

Sep 27, 2021

In Prince George’s County, Maryland, schools have started. Too bad the children can’t get there. After schools knew for months they needed to hire more bus drivers—they are still 190 drivers short. It’s not like people don’t need jobs.

The county’s solution: Tell the parents to make “alternative plans.” That is code for the children having to walk, or parents having to drive them.

P.G. expects working parents who are already tired and stressed to pick up the ball the county dropped in their laps.
