A Better Mid-South: Charter Buses

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Editorial by WMC Action News 5 General Manager Tracey Rogers:

The more I hear about the charter bus services used by Shelby County Schools to transport students and staff to extracurricular events, the more troubled I get.

The school system suspended all charter bus services last week after the WMC Action News 5 Investigators covered a charter bus fire involving Central High School's basketball teams and cheerleaders.

Now, Andy Wise has dug up disturbing details on six of those charter bus services that should have been considered by Shelby County Schools before allowing them to stay on the approved list.

My question is, when is enough enough? I feel strongly that our students deserve better and parents have to know their kids are safe when they get on a bus -- school or charter.

I would like you to weigh in on this. Email me at abettermidsouth@wmctv.com or go to Facebook and like my page, A Better Mid-South, and post a message there.

Assuring our student's safety on buses will make this A Better Mid-South.
