School bus drivers rarely bring good tidings, but one driver in Texas went out of her way to make sure a little girl on her bus had a terrible ride.
The driver of a bus for Floresville Elementary School was fired after she was caught on camera calling a sobbing little girl a “crybaby” and asking the other kids to join her in the vicious taunting. She asked them “Ready?” and proceeded to have them chant “Cry … cry … cry … I want my mama.”
Parents are predictably very upset about the incident, imagining how they’d feel if their kid was the target of the driver’s vitriol.
“I think it’s horrible, especially if it’s my child crying?” Perez said. “If you can’t bully at school, why are they allowing it on the bus?”
Bullying has always been a major problem in schools and has been exacerbated in recent years by computers, phones and social networks. The point is that children need to be protected from bullying at all angles: from students and staff inside and out of schools.
The school’s PTA was obviously disturbed by the video, saying it was “of great concern to everyone who has watched it.”
If you hate children, perhaps it’s best not to work around them.ABC]
