Can you belive this? Children told they can not ride the school bus because they speak English

Three children in Minnesota were riding the bus to school. The bus driver told them that since they spoke English they could not ride the bus home, or ride it ever again. The mother had to come pick them up after school.

In reading the full account, Kids barred from school bus because they spoke English, it makes a little more sense, but only a little. The school district had designated some bus routes for non-English speaking children. The children had been riding a non-English school bus since school started. The school district decided to enforce the separate bus routes on Monday, but didn’t tell parents.

I read things like this and wonder how parents even put up with the public school. The parents are trying to work with the school bureaucracy. It is enough to drive people bonkers.

Hopefully, it will drive the parents to be something more than "bonkers". Hopefully, it will drive them to do something better for their children's education than what the public school system can or will give them. ;)

Why do they need separate buses in the first place?

The prevention of underage gambling and identifying and helping problem gamblers is a core objective in running an integrity driven online gambling operation. Gambling at blackjack, or any other Online Casinos Extreme game for that matter is a great form of leisure and entertainment, but for some it can potentially be dangerous.
