    09.03.2020 | NY1 | “Parents are really sort of waiting, biting their nails, anxiously trying to figure out how their kids are going to get to school, if their kids are kids that need busing,” said Maggie Moroff, special education policy coordinator at Advocates for Children. 

    Moroff said yellow buses serve some of the city’s most vulnerable students. “A lot of the students that Advocates for Children works with, if they don’t have busing, they can’t get to school and they don’t have the options of taking a cab,” she said. “They really need the busing in place if they have disabilities, if they’re kids in foster care, if they’re kids who are homeless. We’re very worried.”  Watch video
