The Lee County School District spends more as a percentage of it's budget on transportation than the eleven other largest districts in the state. One board member and some parents say ending school choice and returning to neighborhood schools would save the district money and improve education. Superintendent Dr. James Browder defends the school choice system as what's best for the students. He says the savings only adds up $6 to $8 million and it isn't worth two years, two hundred meetings and changing the schools for 50,000 students to do it.
The WINK News Viewers View hotline is open for your opinion about school choice, the busing costs and going back to neighborhood schools.
