Posted Updated

RALEIGH — The Nash County bus driver dispute came on theheels of a similar problem in Wake County, but Wake students are againboarding buses as scheduled.

Tuesday morning drivers met with Wake Schools TransportationDirector Wyatt Harper to try to settle their differences, but driversremain divided on the issue. Some say walking out is the only way to getmore money, while others say a walkout only hurts students and sends thewrong message to school administrators.

Regardless of their feelings, most Wake drivers say they will remain onthe job at least until the next school board meeting.

Some had staged a so-called sick-out earlier in the week.
