Though it's been easier for some children to get to class, the bus strike has been more difficult for the city's disabled students.

Although parents and students had to scramble to get their children to school this week because of the bus strike, more reportedly made it to class on the second day of the walkout.

But for many disabled students, it hasn’t been as easy. Their attendance is still significantly lower.

“I can’t take him on the subway because there are no elevators, and I can’t take a cab because his wheelchair doesn’t fold up,” Carmen Padilla, whose 18-year-old son is a paraplegic and has cerebral palsy, told the Daily News.

Have your children been absent or had difficulties getting to school because of the strike?  Comment below and tell us how the bus driver walkout has affected you.
