In legislation that may be offered this week, the State Board of Education could ask to either get rid of the buses or charge for carrying students each day. The change would be part of a new system for distributing state money for student transportation. The Illinois Association of School Boards says transportation spending has been slashed 42% since 2010.</p> Mon, 23 Apr 2012 21:41:25 +0000 AP 17732 at http://wkms.org IL Schools May Charge for Bus Rides
