Every day, thousands and thousands of Idaho students board a bus for school.  At the end of the day, they get back on the bus and return home.

Most of us may not think much about school bus drivers until they are featured in an unflattering headline.

They go mostly unnoticed as they perform their job, yet they are almost always the first – and last – adult that young students encounter during their school days.

The state of Minnesota has decided to recognize bus drivers by designating a School Bus Driver Appreciation Day.

Do bus drivers play an important role in our children’s education, and would you support a school bus driver appreciation day in Idaho?
