The Times Union is reporting that seventh-grader Adam Marino has engaged in a noble act of civil disobedience. Adam and his mother, Janette Kaddo Marino, are defying a Saratoga Springs school policy by biking to Maple Avenue Middle School. Apparently, the school board has a policy that does not allow students to bike or walk to school.
Keep up the good work Adam. You are teaching the school board that there are alternatives to the car and the bus to get to school. While you’re at it, make sure the school board provides you with proper bicycle parking. The bicycle parking should include appropriate bicycle racks, which are covered, in order to protect your bike from the elements. Don’t settle for anything less. You are a young advocate in the making.
