Transportation funds needed

I would like to share with you my opinion on an issue concerning my school district. Recent budget cuts have left my school with no money for busing, or any form of transportation. The rising gas prices have left students? parents no choice but to get their kids to school by bus. Also, these hard economic times have left many parents concerned for their job, and many without one. Without a way to get their kids to and from school, many families will have to make the difficult decision whether to drive their kids to school, or to keep food on the table. To continue busing without the funds, my school would have to take money from the general fund, which pays for teachers and maintenance. I believe that the California state government should return transportation funds. This is my opinion on the subject. Hunter Kennedy, age 12, sixth grade, Auburn
