Nigritude Ultramarine points out a scheme by Lakewood haredim to replace non-Jewish bus drivers (paid with government funds) to all haredi bus drivers. These haredi drivers will be paid with government money, as well, but haredim will also supplement the "frum" drivers' salaries by charging each family a certain amount of money per pupil. These extra funds will be laundered through the haredi schools and given to the haredi drivers.
Is this legal? Ethical? Good? As Lakewood Kollel Wife notes:
…The main organizer of this effort (I forgot his name, but ISTR that he is the eidem of R' Zimbal from Westgate) estimated that it would cost $5-$10 per child per month. I imagine that this is probably a typical low ball estimate, but haven't done any calculation myself. But in any event, for a large family it could easily work out to $500-$1,000 per year.
In addition to the costs involved, I don't see how this can be legally done. Even if it can, you can only imagine what the reaction of the average goy will be when he finds out (and like everything else, he will find out) that Jewish drivers are getting special subsidies that non-Jewish ones don't get, and to ensure that Jewish kids don't have to come into contact with non-Jews.
And note that the township busing is already a very hot topic to begin with.
People like to complain about anti-Semitism, and I'm sure when the inevitable fuss is made over this people will be all innocent. Eisav sonei l'Yaacov, yeah, that's what it is ...
I say a resounding "no" to all three. It is illegal, unethical and decidedly bad.
