Letter: School bus drivers

July 18, 2014 

Late last year there was a school bus accident in Kuna School District, killing one and seriously injuring several others. Bus drivers can have up to 50 people in their care while driving. There is no do-over in many cases.

On the other hand, schoolteachers do have a do-over. They can say I gave you some misinformation earlier and I need to correct it.

I have a question: Why do schoolteachers make about twice as much as the bus drivers?
