Relief for parents coping with rising bus fees
This article talks about the rising of school bus fees every year and how it has become more expensive each year. With the Budget 2015 scheme, school bus fees are waived and the students in the financial assistance scheme will pay less for their bus fees. The writer thinks that the rise of school fees are caused by the increased cost of vehicle insurance, and as a result, students have to pay more even though they are not involved in an accident. I agree with the writer that school fees are caused by the increased cost of vehicle insurance. To ensure the students' safety, the school may need to pay more for insurance. They may not have enough funds to pay for the insurance, hence the school bus fees must be raised so that they will be enough money to pay for the insurance.
