When I went to school the buses were run by the school itself. There wasn’t very much traffic in Bellingham. I don’t remember any accidents or even close calls. But our world has gotten so much more frenetic.
Recently a school district reached a $10 million settlement with the families of five children injured in a 2014 school bus accident. Several children were seriously injured when the driver crashed into a tree.
Pursuing these cases sends a strong message to school districts that they need to take care of students. Parents put their trust in school districts. School districts have to live up to their end of the bargain.
