The major purpose of this study is to determine the status of school transportation in Kentucky, with the hope that many of the local problems, conditions, and needs may be discovered, and if not solved, show the need for their solution. The State Department of Education of Kentucky, with Assistant Superintendent of Public Instruction, Gordie Young, as chairman of the committee on transportation, has set up a standard program of transportation for Kentucky. The writer believes the control and regulation of school transportation by the State Department of Education is very desirable from an economical standpoint. This is shown by results produced in other states where transportation is controlled by the State Department of Education. In Indiana the cost of school transportation has been greatly reduced by close supervision and regulation by the Indiana State Department of Education.
