One of the latest ideas from Michelle Obama is that students get to school by using a "walking school bus".
These were the first images that I thought of when I heard this. But I would be wrong...
A walking school bus is what the rest of the world would call
WALKING TO SCHOOL with adult supervision
(you know like with those people...who are they again??? ..oh yeah, parents).
It's not a very new idea since people have been accomplishing this since the beginning of walking and the start of the formal education system.
A couple of weeks ago the Chicago Public Schools said they just hired 600 Chicago residents and community members to expand their Safe Passage program at a cost to the taxpayers of 7 million dollars.
I wonder how many of them will be the new "drivers" of the Walking School Buses when this next school year gets under way.
