Plan penalizes good workers, rewards those with problems

-A A +A

The school system shouldn’t offer extra pay just to get bus drivers to come to work.

Brunswick County Schools officials have a problem getting some of its bus drivers to show up for work.
And it’s costing taxpayers extra money.
Worse yet, it’s likely going to cost you more.
Each time a bus driver calls in sick, the district pays that employee sick time and then must pay a substitute to fill that route.
To make it worse, officials are often left scrambling to find a replacement driver in the wee hours of the morning—ensuring someone shows up to get a bus on the road and your children safely to school.
