What Next? Privatized School Transportation (video)

Whitmore School TUSD

SB1280 is another massive, strike everything, right-wing model bill proposed by Rep. Shawnna Bolick. What else would we hear in the last week of committees? There are dozens of terrible bills including several strike-everything’s in committees this week. I was not kidding when I told people over the weekend in Tucson that many of us have PTSI from the horrible bills that are passing the legislature all too often on bipartisan votes.

SB1280 appropriates $10 million in grants to privatize school transportation. This is a horrible Koch Brothers model bill that leaves our young children vulnerable in the name of privatization. It is on the agenda for Ways and Means on Wednesday.

If you are on RTS, you can just say no.

UPDATE: SB1280 was worse than I originally thought. Check out the subsequent video and blog post on privatization of school transportation and other education-related bills here: Republicans Attack Invest in Ed & Ignore Voters (video).
