Every morning across the U.S. kid's are  running off to catch the  school bus, as parents keep their fingers crossed that they made it!

Well, that may be a thing of the past for some parents If a new trend starts happening in more parts of the country.. Parents will be charged for the kids to ride the school bus.

In Illinois they are debating this as we speak. With over 2 million children in that state relying on a school bus to get to and from school, that will affect a lot of kids. We are in a situation where all 3 of our kids take the bus, and it would really rack up expenses .

I can see where these cash strapped school districts have to resort to this, but what about the kids that live miles and miles from the school? Without free transportation, many kids will be absent a lot.
