At a Georgia county not far from CNN, many students are going to have a longer walk to the bus stop. A Montana high school recently launched four-day school weeks. And in Houston, Texas, most students living within two miles of their schools will have to walk, bike, or get a ride.
It's all designed to save school systems money. Over the past year, I've seen stories about cancelled field trips, cancelled after-school activities, and cancelled bus routes. These are all examples of how the recession is personally affecting you. But you're finding your way through it - like millions of other Americans - and for that, you should be proud.
How are you holding up?
