NC’s booming Fort Bragg families face bus shortage

FORT BRAGG, N.C. — Military families at North Carolina’s fast-growing Fort Bragg face a lack of buses to take children to county schools.

The Fayetteville Observer reported Friday that more than 200 children from the Linden Oaks subdivision are enrolled at a new elementary school and the middle school across the street. The homes were built on Fort Bragg property inside Harnett County.

Subdivision residents want their children enrolled in the county schools, but the Harnett school board doesn’t have the money to provide buses. Fort Bragg commanders say the Army would take the children to schools on post, but not to county schools.

About 20 families a month are moving into Linden Oaks homes as the Army closes some bases and expands Fort Bragg.
