This driver is being charged for not breaking up a fight on her bus. I guess if I was told that there was going to be a fight on my bus, they would be charging me too. I am not saying that the kid would have 4 chipped teeth and all that, but I simply wouldn’t believe them for the most part. That a fight was even going to happen.
I would pull over scream, yell, and make them all sit up front. They would all get off the bus though as planned. I would call my boss and tell him about it and write them all up the next day.
I don’t know what was expected of this driver, she was inexperienced you can say just from her age of 24. You can’t drive a school bus until you are 21, so she had less than 3 years driving. I don’t know if I would have handled this situation correctly and surely 3 years ago, I probably wouldn’t have.
What do you think? Is this a felony child neglect case?? I personally don’t think it is…if that isn’t apparent. I think this is a case to use in our driver training programs. Teach us…what to do.
Here is the PDF.
