The distance that New Orleans children ride the bus to school each day has risen to 3.5 miles in the city’s fragmented charter-school system, nearly double the 1.8 miles they traveled before Hurricane Katrina, according to a report by Della Hasselle of our sister site at MidCityMessenger.com. After the traffic death of a first-grader waiting for the bus last month, City Councilwoman LaToya Cantrell and other city officials are looking into ways to make the busing system safer and more efficient across the city, Hasselle reports.
