Absolutely not! It's too unsafe! Schools have a right to forbid it.
It depends on the situation
I'm not sure...
Only if accompanied by a parent or guardian.
It's up to the parent or guardian to decide.
Seriously? This whole society is turning our kids into fat weinies with all this paranoia!
Oh god. In sixth grade, I rode my bike two miles to school, then back, every day with a gaggle of local kids. It was never an issue. I fail to see why it ever would be.
Then again, I went to school in Davis, CA. Davis might actually be the bicycle capital of America. I wouldn't be surprised if there's more bike rack slots than parking spaces in that town
The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).
My goodness.A New York mother is fighting back against her school district after administrators and officials told her she and her son didn't have the right to bike to school together — and that his safety, even beyond school walls, was out of her hands.
Janette Kaddo Marino said their 3-mile rides to and from school in Saratoga Springs have been met with stiff opposition from officials and even a state trooper who claimed it was unsafe — and illegal — for her 12-year-old son Adam to travel on his own pair of wheels.
Undeterred, she and her seventh-grader have continued cruising to Maple Avenue Middle School this fall in defiance of a 15-year-old school regulation that effectively forces kids to take the bus or hitch a ride in a family car.
No wonder children and teens are getting fatter and lazier, when are we going to stop wrapping them up in cotton wool. This obsession over danger and pedo's is getting ridiculous.
Children have a higher chance of getting run over than being kidnapped.
From the age of 9 I was allowed to walk back and forth from school and play in the park with neighbours. I remember times when I was out of the house after breakfast and came back with a group of friends in the afternoon.
