Letter to the editor: Stupified about busing

I would like to add to the opinion letter on page 6 from the May 20 Sierra Sun. Ms. David is spot-on with her comments regarding the school board’s decision to charge for busing.

After I had read the article from last Friday’s Sierra Sun, I was ” well, stupified. Around 1,250 students out of some 2,000 qualify for free or reduced fare?

Leaving the lion’s share to be shouldered by 485 full-pay students? 37.5 percent are going to be required to pay for 62.5 percent?

All I can say is first: Nothing is free in a socialistic society.

Second: The emperor isn’t just naked, he’s offensive as well! The good news is, it’s still the great U.S. of A and what’s truly awe inspiring is we really do have options.
