Neighbourhood schools

THE SETTING up of neighbourhood schools will reduce accidents involving school buses. Besides, the Supreme Court should intervene in the matter and direct the Government of Delhi to enforce safety rules, making the presence of two attendants compulsory in each school bus, one of them trained to impart first aid. The students, especially juniors, should not be left unattended in the vehicles.
