But when I came across this little gem, I just couldn’t resist. It’s topical, it’s about education, and the best part is it’s controversial.

Understandably not everyone has the bizarre sense of humor that I have, but for some reason, stumbling onto this article just put a big smile on my face for the rest of the afternoon. I am intrigued by the concept of renting school buses out for private use. I don’t think any of us work in districts that couldn’t use some extra income.
