Revise school transport

Cut the use of taxis for puils to and from school to those who have parents unable to transport them ie: disability or do not drive.

Too many kids with parents get taxied to school at council's expense when their parents are perfectly able to drive them.  Have a car & don't work ... drop your kids to school yourself.  

Why the contribution is important

Money saved could be used to fund extra support in mainstream classes for those kids that really need it but currently miss out.

    I am sure that those taxi to school are likely to have a physical or social need as the number isn't that large - most are bussed. Just because someone looks OK doesn't mean they are. Also some people live so remotely that they have no other option. Please remember unless there is a disability, if people are placing their child in a school other than their local one they have to either transport them themselves or pay for service buses.
