Busing is horrible in mountains in snow and sleet. And endangering kids is government mandated? Pffft!
I grew up in small towns and once I had to go to a high school with almost 2000 kids in it.
I practically died. I already hated school but I could not handle being with 2000 utter strangers.
The first reason I decided to homeschool was my horrible memories of public schooling.
