There are students in the city of Oshkosh – mostly middle and high schoolers – who are missing school because they’re not eligible for traditional school busing and they don’t have money to pay for public transportation. On this edition of Eye on Oshkosh, Professor Jennifer Considine, discusses the issue with host Cheryl Hentz, and explains what ESTHER, an organization on which she is a board member, is doing about it. A local parent and her daughter share the problem from their own perspective. Later in the show ESTHER community organizer Bill Van Lopik joins Jennifer to talk about other social justice issues ESTHER is involved in. Watch the program here: https://youtu.be/EOc67KtPR1w
