This book was written with the school bus driver training instructor in mind. It is not intended as a course of instruction but rather as a reference source to be utilized by the instructor in the preparation of his own course of study. He, alone, knows the extent of his instructional needs, the materials that should be used and the effort that must be put forth to meet them successfully. In essence, it can be stated, without equivocation, that its one all encompassing objective is to provide the instructor with some of the information that is needed to ensure the operation of school buses in a safe, efficient and economical manner. The book contains a series of suggested instructional units that, hopefully, will provide the instructor with a simplified, systematic approach to program planning. Most of the information is drawn from more than twenty-five years of experience in the field. It is, understandably, supplemented with information gleaned from attendance at dozens of local, state, regional and national level conferences on pupil transportation, from conversations with many of the nation's leading authorities in pupil transportation, from such nationally recognized organizations as the National Safety Council, the American Red Cross, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Federal Highway Administration and throughout the reading of driver instructional manuals published by numerous state departments of education.
