45 minutes one way (in good weather, good traffic)
15 days equals 22.5 hours.
we have not wasted 22.5 hours of my daughter's life riding the bus, doing nothing educational and essentially being forced to sit still and blank out.
What a major bonus of homeschooling!

That's one of the many reasons we started homeschooling. We used to live way out in the country, and the kids - from kindergarten - would have a fourty minute bus drive. When they get old enough to go to high school, the nearest one took an hour and a half on the school bus. Each way.By Andrea, at 6:55 PM

I used to ride the bus like that and I swore I would never ride the damn bus again (LONG bus rides in Texas without air conditioning), why should I make my child suffer the same?
