In yesterday’s PDN Editorial, it stated the importance of outsourcing our public school buses and how it will “…save the government millions of dollars.” How will privatizing our school buses save money? We recently had some DPW garbage trucks that needed to be repaired. Instead of getting the $20 part to repair it, DPW rented trucks from a private company which cost way more than having it repaired. We have no cost-benefit analysis reported that have shown privatization will save us money. The problem lies in our funding. If we can just find ways to pump money into our public structure so that it can perform its functions properly then things will be a lot better.
