(Studio) 65% children were bused to school prior to race reasons.
REPORTER: Garrick Utley

(Cornwall, Connecticut.) Many students ride buses because they live in rural or suburban areas and attend large schools distant from homes. (Falls Village, Connecticut.) At Husatonic Valley Regional High School, of 690 pupils, 600 are bused. Busing accepted. [Principal. Ed KIRBY - rode bus to same school 30 years ago. Regional high school affords pooling of resources and higher quality education.] Race not an issue, but busing prevalent.
