FEATURE
The school board at the Monroe County Community School Corporation is scheduled to vote tomorrow night on a contract that would affect the jobs of dozens of bus drivers. The proposed agreement has drawn public criticism from some local residents, including some of the drivers. Late last week the Bloomington Solidarity Network released a report describing how the contract could produce problems for local workers and for school children. WFHB News Director Joe Crawford spoke with two authors of the report for today’s WFHB community report.
