A Mockery of the Word
Yesterday, a woman came into the school seething mad. She demanded to see the principal regarding a bussing issue. I could hear her in the vice principal's office, tearing a strip off him. When she had left, he explained what she was so upset about.
Apparently, her son has to walk 15 minutes to get to the bus stop. (Not uncommon with cut-backs these days). Other kids (obviously the ones who live closer to the stop bus) have to walk LESS than 15 minutes. THIS, she claims angrily, is DISCRIMINATION!
