    But yet my kid's district always stresses that it's not a 'right' to ride the bus - it's a 'priviledge' . .. the only time a priviledge can get you killed for needing ot take advantage of it.
    We experienced a bad bus situation where my daughter had her hair pulled and cut from people in the seat behind her. We reported it and talked to the principal. She said that she could discipline the children that did it, however, knowing the children involved they would retaliate against my daughter. The principal asked if knowing that we'd like to go forward. I said, "No, I want her assigned to ####, another school." Fortunately we didn't have a problem getting the transfer approved and new school was a lot closer.

    Re: Girl Beaten Unconscious Over Bus Seat: Cops

    I was always asked why I would not let my child take the bus. Why I would take the time to drive my child to school and be there for pick up when it would have easier on me to have the bus do the work. My child would ask me to allow the bus to be taken. My answer has always been NO. The drivers cannot do the job as the teachers and definitely not the parent, some are not capable, some do not care to.

    The lessons learned, the beatings and the nonsense on the bus during the unstructured time where my kid would be subjected to this is something I keep at bay.

    I would like to know exactly what the bus driver was doing when this beating took place.

    In addition, I would tell you that I'm tired of that crap. Good and well raised children, regardless of family income, do NOT trump thug behavior. Bad kids do not become good kids by attending school with well behaved children. It doesn't work that way.

    I am to the point where I believe that private schools funded by vouchers are the only way. If your kid ****s up enough and gets the boot, adios. That means my children have the opportunity to attend schools where learning might actually take place. Base enrollment on continued favorable behavior, that is equality.

    Re: Girl Beaten Unconscious Over Bus Seat: Cops

    I see anger towards the bus driver and school administrators. Where is the outrage towards the parents of the kids that did the beating?
    Yes, the school system needs to provide a safe environment for our kids. Having good kids starts at home and finishes at home. Schools would have less problems if some parents did their job in raising kids.

    Scum will be scum. Expecting scum to behave like good people is a painful way to go through life-- and an irresponsible basis for public policy. We need to make policy decisions based on the reality that some people are scum and are always going to be scum, and thus that our policies need to take scum into account.

    I have to agree that parents need to be taken to task. Violent children come from violent households, whether the violence at home is physical or more mental. Where did these kids learn it was acceptable to beat someone into unconsciousness?

    I just imagine that poor girl... her first day on the bus. As if that isn't intimidating enough for some children, but to have the life nearly beaten out of you for no good reason. What a frightening introduction. To people who say "kids will be kids" and bullying is a normal part of growing up, will you please acknowledge some of the extremes that are happening in today's world? This is not simple rivalry - it's blood lust and a passion for inflicting horrible suffering on others. This behavior needs IMMEDIATE correction.

    Kids who do these kinds of things need an early introduction to the law, or, in an ideal world, there would be special schools setup to send all of these problem children so that they can get the kinks ironed out - including getting their parents involved in the process, since they are obviously a root of this issue.

    Such a sad story, this one.

    It has to be the bus driver's fault. I mean, these kids need our help. They're obviously from families that need our help, too. I think the federal government would be wise to collect more money from its citizens (the ones who don't need so much help) in order to have better paid and better trained personnel.

    I mean, we can't let school personnel have any power. And, we can't tell the parents to discipline their kids or keep them at home. But, if we pay enough money towards education, it will get better, right? Maybe we could pick kids up individually?

    Income level has nothing to do with obedience. Entitlement has everything to do with disobedience. Kids who understand that their behavior has consequences behave.

    What? are you being sarcastic?
    The only thing I agree on is the kids and family need help or something. IMO, govt may be part of the solution. The real solution starts at home with the parents.
    As someone else said sometimes people will be scum no matter what we do.

    The parents are not being absolved of their responsibility here, nevertheless, the bus driver was on the scene. The driver has a duty to insure the safe operation of the bus. The school administration has a duty to hire properly and insure a safe environment for the students. If the gang of kids who did the beating were known to the administration then the administration was required to act in a manner that would have prevented this situation. That means getting the parents involved as well.

They'd have to call out the National Guard to get me off of the school district.

    WHY did the bus driver not pull over and call 911? Why did he or she not do that? Oh, no, no, no. Heads would ****ing roll if that were my child!
    If it were my kid I wouldn't even bother with the school district.

    I would find out where these punks lived and give it to them worse.

    But I don't think I could stop myself at putting them unconscious.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.
