Many of these children would become confused and disoriented if they were made to walk to the big bus stop and follow all the rules and mingle with the other kids. If a small bus comes up to their door as their mothers walk them to it’s door, it is far easier for them to get a good start in their day. The drivers of the small buses many times are accustomed to dealing with the needs of these children, whereas the drivers of the big bus only know how to yell, threaten, and write tickets. Also, kids are cruel. If you had a disabled child, would you want him/her to spend 45 minutes of the morning and afternoon being spit on, slapped in the head, having their stuff stolen or smashed up, and taunted and teased? The bus tends to be quite a bit worse than the yard.
