Retaining Public School Bus Drivers On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, the challenge to recruit and retain public school bus drivers remains at a critical level, and it’s having a ripple effect on student education. Meanwhile, a shortage of bus mechanics is only aggravating the problem.

Reporter Randy Yohe spoke with West Virginia School Service Personnel Association Executive Director Joe White about the urgent need to find a solution, including legislative remedies – enacted or dismissed – to fix the problem.
