When a young person makes the honor roll, I know he took a school bus to get to the school, but I don’t give the bus driver credit for the honor roll.

Romney and Ryan’s disdain for the working class - The Washington Post

Schools and teachers have a direct role in that child’s success, and without good teachers and good schools, it is likely that that child would not be as successful or be educated at all. When you consider that without buses, bus drivers, and public roads, many children might not be able to make it to school at all, public or otherwise, it drives home the fact that while a child has his or her part to do, they need teachers, schools, buses, bus drivers, and public roads to help them get there.

When people like Romney and Ryan insist that schools and school teachers are the enemy, they call into question the very opportunity for children from families who don’t have the money for private schools even to get an education at all, much less be on the honor roll.

(via robot-heart-politics)

My grandfather was a bus driver and I know so many students, both from rural and city areas that credited him for his wisdom and kindness on the bus every morning. On every ride home. These people are important people, they matter, they take care of other peoples’s children for that time for the sake of an education that is needed by the younger generation and to belittle and over look these people simply because they’re of a different “caste” system is disgusting to me.
