Sound Off highlights anonymous, brief takes on the news offered via telephone by Daily News readers.

I think the Beaufort County Board of Education needs to address the fact some children are getting on school buses at 6:15 and 6:20 in the morning, which is entirely too early. Little children don’t need to be standing out at the bus stop while their parents are getting ready for work. Everybody can’t stand on the side of the road with their children, and everybody doesn’t have the luxury of staying home with their children. So, that needs to be addressed — getting up at 5 a.m. to put your children on the bus at 6:15 is crazy.

I’d like to thank the DOT for paving Fifth Street in Washington. You’re doing a fantastic job. How about giving Third Street a lick or two?

Correct me if I’m wrong, but Toyota car company is not union run by American fat-cat union people, and it’s because of Toyota and Nissan that American cars are better quality to this day. So, they need to find something else to talk about.

Concerning the article in Saturday, Sept. 1, on pre-K funding: this is a scam to get more free babysitting for 4-year-olds at taxpayers’ expense. The amount of learning at age 4 can certainly be done at home. If state babysitting services continue on this path, taxpayers will eventually be taking child-care responsibilities straight from the delivery rooms.
