Dover parents to pay for student bus rides

What do folks think about the announcement that Dover schools will require parents to pay up to $50 each year for students to ride the bus to and from school?

I think it's insane. I would be p*ssed if the district told me I had pay $50/yr for the bus. Personally I foresee the Dover school district setting themselves up for a lawsuit. All it will take is one accident involving a kid walking to school because said parents don't want to fork over the fifty bucks. Or even worse, any report of an attempted abduction. It's just a very bad idea all around.
