administration.s Committee of Education. According to

including a .school bus. concept, is being worked

out.. The head of the Committee noted that there had

been no such need until new city districts started

expanding . Kolomyagi, Metallostroy. This is why

Governor suggested to introduce school buses that will

drive children to the nearest schools and back

instead of building new schools in each new district.
