Old becomes new again

As a former driver of a walking school bus, I am surprised to see it get rediscovered. But that is where we are.Providence, RI, Sioux City, IA, and Columbia, MO are all among the cities featured in this news story for rediscovering the walking school bus.

The WSB is a very popular trend to fight obesity, trim school budgets, make school a little more fun and keep kids safe. But, with roots going back (at least) to the early 1990s, it is far from new.

Of course, the entire idea of walking to school is just a new old idea too.
