How do kids get to school in Panama?

Post Posted: Fri Sep 04, 2015 11:48 pm

My apologies if this has been asked before - I did a search before posting but was unable to find anything.

How do kids get to school in Panama? We are considering moving from the United States and are curious how far out is too far out to live for schools? We will probably choose a private school, but are open to all options for our kids.

I have been on all government sites and cannot find information regarding school transportation. Is this something that is regulated by the Panamanian government? Or is this done at the local level? Or is it done at all?

I found one blog that stated that school transportation is done by school - is that correct? How common is it for schools to provide transportation?

Thanks in advance.
