ABSTRACT
The purpose of this study was to determine if mandating bus safety education increases the amount of bus safety education taught in elementary schools. Primary grade teachers in non-mandated bus safety education states were less likely to teach bus safety education and more likely to be in the relapse stage than teachers from the mandated bus safety education states. Teachers in mandated states valued teaching bus safety significantly more than those from non-mandated states. Finally, 25% of teachers in non-mandated bus safety education states claimed they desired more training compared to 19% teachers in the mandated bus safety education states.
