    This is exactly what I want to see out of David Chiu. He is the Pres of BoS and should be initializing a lot of the things he says he’ll do if elected mayor. No reason to wait!

    So glad to hear that SFUSD is gradually turning over its transportation of general population students to MUNI.  This is exactly what is needed.  No costly yellow school buses and duplication of transit services.  More of the money in the classroom.  Sharing the bus with others, non-students, should make the ride to school safer, too, for kids who’ve been picked on in the past.  This sort of inter-generational mixing is exactly what we need. The kids really are all right.
