Over 9,000 Providence Public School Students (including  1,000 special needs students) have been denied transportation to and from school in VIOLATION of RI GL 16-21 Health & Safety of Pupils: which states cities should provide SUITABLE transportation to & from school. This is preventing those students 

The general law states that: (a) The school committee of any town or city shall provide suitable transportation, that may include, but is not limited to, pupil transportation vehicles as defined in § 31-22.1-1, to and from school for pupils attending public and private schools of elementary and high school grades, except private schools that are operated for profit, who reside so far from the public or private school that the pupil attends as to make the pupil's regular attendance at school impractical and for any pupil whose regular attendance would otherwise be impracticable on account of physical disability or infirmity.
