HONOLULU (AP) - Members of the state Board of Education are questioning the full cost - and benefit - of following a consultant's recommendations and overhauling Hawaii's student transportation program.

Management Partnership Services was hired to review the state busing system amid concerns about rising costs. The consultant found the system needs substantive changes.

During a meeting Tuesday, several board members said they felt pressure to find a solution but there were questions about how successful - and realistic - the consultant's approach was. Uncertain, too, is the cost of implementation.

Board member Wesley Lo said this may be a situation that calls for incremental rather than "revolutionary" change. He said there have to be some "quick wins," given the attention to the problem and public concerns.
