LANSING, MI — Lansing School Board Vice President Myra Ford addressed the growing concern for safety and student wellbeing on Lansing Public School buses at the meeting on Feb. 6. Ford presented concerns brought up at the Parent Community Advisory Committee Meeting held on Feb. 4, where she and Teresa Szymanski, the Chief Operations Officer of Lansing schools, spoke with parents about the issue. “Teresa [Szymanski] rode the school bus one day and was astounded by what she saw,” said Ford, people who don’t ride don’t understand, and they need to see what is going on.
