What the story is describing are not "kinks". I'm so glad my kids are adults. The 'kids' that parents are raising today are pigs.

I just want to say not all "kids" are pigs. Sorry to tell you I have a child at a MPS school and she is no where a pig. People need to stop generalizing other peoples actions with everyone. And the story says the buss passes are distributed to Minneapolis kids, that part is true. But we live in Brooklyn Park and she goes to a Minneapolis school. So get the facts straight before you write.

A wonderful life's lesson the students could learn is that if they are late the bus won't wait!

"Now the southbound bus stop is closed for the hour after school and buses detour to Edison's doorstep." So what do the regular, full fare paying, tax paying riders have to do to get where they want to go during that hour? Are they told "too bad, so sad." I am also curious, when the bus itself is late in the morning, which does happen, are the students counted as having an unexcused tardy?

@buterfly61: Are you assuming that children who ride the city bus has no parents that ride the bus and pay taxes. Get off the tax paying riders tip. It wasn't the fault of the children why they have to ride metrotransit, it was the decision of the school district. I have stated I have a child which goes to a MPS school and I am a tax payer. Now what?
