A Better Mid-South: Charter Buses

A Better Mid-South: Charter Buses

Editorial by WMC Action News 5 General Manager Tracey Rogers:

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - 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

after the WMC Action News 5 Investigators covered

basketball teams and cheerleaders.

Now, Andy Wise has dug up

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

or go to Facebook and

, and post a message there.

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