School bus drivers strike begins in New York City

From The New York Times: The first strike of New York City school bus drivers in three decades has begun, leaving more than 100,000 children and their parents to negotiate new ways to class on a soggy, cold winter morning. Most of the city's 1.1 million students walk or rely on public transportation to get to school, but the 152,000 students who rely on the school system's bus service include 54,000 children with special needs.
