Cloze test asked in 2nd shift :
It is just after eight in the morning and Chelsea, a young mother from Fort Wayne, Indiana, looks grey with stress as she drops her child at Glenwood Park, an elementary school in the city’s north-east. Like many in this drab rustbelt city, she used to rely on school buses to pull off an elaborate daily ballet, involving her mother, a niece and others, to get her children to and from classes. But as this academic year begins, budget cuts have forced Fort Wayne to take scores of school buses out of service. When lessons resumed about 7,000 pupils found themselves without a bus ride. The changes make getting to work “a lot harder”, says Chelsea, steering her ageing Chrysler around a new three-lane access loop at Glenwood Park, built to handle the extra car traffic.
These bus cuts are more than a local drama. Look closely, and Fort Wayne’s woes point to a larger debate about how to pay for and supply public services. Today around half of all American schoolchildren—about 25m—ride an estimated 480,000 school buses to lessons. But school districts across the country face cuts to their transport budgets. Some voters, notably older folk, say they are not fussed. Such oldies grumble that today’s children are soft if they need busing about, claiming—to quote a Republican state representative from Indiana—that they walked miles to school each day even in deep snow, and “uphill both ways”. But among younger voters, especially parents, school buses remain popular. Paying for them is less popular.
