BROOKLYN - Although the school bus strike ended weeks ago, some parents in Brooklyn say the issue that caused the strike is far from over.

Parents protested outside of the Department of Education (DOE) administrative building today in Downtown Brooklyn today, saying they are worried about their children's safety traveling to and from school.

The group, called Parents to Improve School Transportation, says that since the school bus strike, the DOE has let several companies lock out dozens of experienced workers, leaving many students without reliable bus service and less skilled workers.
