Parents investigated because children walked to school

This is the kind of material that should be in Arbroath. A couple in Spokane is being investigated by Child Protective Services because they made their children walk to school when they missed the bus:

The couple claims they have told their 8- and 10-year-old children that if they miss bus then they have to walk to school as punishment. They allege this is a form of punishment they have set in the past and have enforced from time-to-time.

On Nov. 17 the children missed the bus and were forced to walk the 1.4 miles to school.

The children walked along a dirt path off Highway 291 to get there.

Maree Koolstra said she followed the children along as she drove in her car to monitor their progress.
