A mass resignation of Chicago Public Schools bus drivers refusing to abide by a coronavirus vaccination mandate led to a citywide scramble to find transportation for thousands of students on Monday as school started.
According to The Chicago Sun-Times, about 2,100 students — including 990 kids in special education — were given barely two days’ notice that their bus route would not be available for the first day of school. Their parents, needless to say, were not pleased.
