A reader reminds me that school bus drivers in Floyd County are another underpaid and often unrecognized group.

My Social Security check is higher than the average take home pay of a school bus driver.

When you consider the fact that we trust the safety of our children to these folks twice a day, that’s a lot of responsibility.

Instead of looking for ways to reward top officials, the School Board should be looking for ways to increase the pay of those who actually spend time with the students: teachers, bus drivers, etc.

Something to think about.
