Parents are super protective of their children. There is more involved that is personal with school bus drivers — watching for bullying, stopping fights, connecting with students, handling confused or scared children.

True, but "watching for bullying, stopping fights, connecting with students, handling confused or scared children," could largely be handled by surveillance systems and a "call center" type company to monitor several buses per person. They could even use AI to monitor the systems and report incidents to the monitor to increase the number of buses one monitor can manage.
