Parent sues Indiana district that stopped providing free buses

Nov. 2, 2011
Lawsuit contends that state constitution doesn't allow fees for student transportation

From The Indianapolis Star: An Indianapolis woman is suing the the Franklin Township (Ind.) school district over its decision to stop providing school bus transportation. Lori Hoagland, who filed the suit, drives her two sons to and from school because she can't afford the nearly $50-per-child monthly fee. The district sold its buses this summer to an education cooperative that now provides transportation. The lawsuit argues that the cooperative is an agent of the school district and that Indiana's constitution makes it illegal to charge for bus transportation.
