8th-Grader Punished After Reporting Students Had Sex On Bus
WHIO-TV ^ | 5/13/11

Posted on 05/16/2011 10:44:43 AM PDT by markomalley

An eighth-grade charter school student who said she saw two classmates having sex on a bus during a group spring break trip is being punished for reporting the incident, her mother said.

The girl, who goes to Dayton View Academy, waited until she got home to tell her mom what she saw. The school is punishing her for not telling chaperons who were on the bus at the time it happened.

"If you tell something on a kid, you have to look for the response from that child and at the time," said Saundra Roundtree, the girl's mother. "She was afraid. I told her 'don't say anything when you are at school. I will handle it.' "

Roundtree said her daughter won't be able to go to her eighth-grade prom or the class picnic. The students who reportedly had sex are being punished as well, but Roundtree feels as though disciplining her daughter sends the wrong message. She added that all eight chaperons were sitting in the front of the bus watching a movie when the incident occurred.

This is so over the top on so many levels to almost defy a response. That said, 8th graders having sex on a bus? That for starters. Killing the messenger and then posting the name of the student’s family in the news too. WOW. Schools need be abolished and everyone needs to home school.

What BS story.......She is being punished for not immediately telling the chaperons. I am so sick of these Bull craps article titles. They are always so false and exaggerated.

Why should the chaperones be punished?

They didn’t do anything. :)

How Orwellian. If you see wrong-doing, you have to report it immediately or you will get punished. What about the other kids on the bus who probably saw the sex but said nothing? Will they all get punished? The totalitarian state lives.

The girl handled the situation appropriately. If the chaperones didn’t care enough to do their jobs, it wasn’t her duty to sacrifice herself.

If I were the mom, I’d have that school’s administration by the short hairs for revealing my daughter’s name in conjunction with this incident.

The schools these days have such terrible double standards. If a child does something seriously wrong, they’ll form a bond with the student and refuse to tell parents about their ‘confidential’ communications.

Then they’ll burn a kid on a moment’s notice for doing the right thing.

I have such contempt for our nation’s school officials.

When I coached football and we went to an away game, the cheer leaders would ride on the bus with us. I put the girls in the front of the bus, had coaches sit between the players and the girls and a couple of coaches in the back of the bus. You just can’t trust those cheer leaders you know.

Once upon a time, I chaperoned a 7th grade trip, a weekend trip to a science center. One of the girls upon arriving home told her father she was raped on the bus. The so called rapist was sitting in the front of the bus, the girl in the back. The boy never went to the back of the bus. The bus trip was in broad daylight and there was no movie to distract the chaperones.

When taken to the hospital it was discovered that the girl was already very pregnant by another boy but made up the rape story to deflect blame for her own and that boy’s behavior.
So much for sex ed.

According to the chaparones, “If the bus is a-rockin’, then don’t come a-knockin’.”

IMHO:

The eight chaperones are quilty of child neglect, they should all be fired and charged.

The little girl is a child and therefore not responsible for “failing to report” the act. It is very understandable that she would have been afraid to act at the time.

The chaperones in that situation are acting en loco parentis, that is, they have full responsibility for all the children on the bus. Trouble is, today, they don’t discharge their responsibility, they don’t offer any meaningful discipline as a normal course of businessness, so the “cat is away” and the mice will play. Case in point, they were ignoring all their charges and watching a movie.

Public schools should all be shut down and parents should all be on their own to send to a private school or home school. Authority and Responsiblity must be granted in equal measure, and in the case of their children, parents have full authority and full responsibility.

But I guess not in the wacky world we live in.

A false rape charge can seriously F up a guy’s whole life.

IMO, the penalty for making such a false charge, should be made quite similar to the penalties for a rape.

Deliver a long sentence. Register the person as someone who would destroy someone else for personal gain.

Set up guidelines that would prevent this type of person from being considered for certain types of employment for life.

I honestly cannot imagine someone being willing to destroy someone in this manner falsely.

8th graders having sex on a bus

I have no idea because the media only writes what it wants us to hear. The parents can always take her out of the school but I don’t believe they will because it is a charter school and they are extremely difficult to get into. She will suck it up and miss the 8th grade prom.....whoever heard of such a thing anyway. She can go to her junior prom like everyone else in history.

Okay, punishing someone for trying to do what she was instructed to do, and not allowing for a margin of doubt. What if she honestly did what others would do, and wait to make sure no one would report the incident? Plus she doesn’t need to have her name mentioned everywhere either! Nothing is worse to deal with than a disciplinary code which cannot be satisfied.

Duke Lacrosse players bring back memories? Also how the state prosecutor willfully and knowingly conspired with the police to supress exculpatory evidence. It's all to easy to imagine when the masses are being whipped up with envy from the news media and the Democrats on a daily basis.

I already do home school my eight year-old son. I don't want him to put up with bullying, being dumbed down, the lies and trash they teach, etc. I'm glad I'll never have to worry about putting him in a situation like this. I know there are times when my mom wanted to strangle teachers and principals throughout my time in school. The way schools are now I'd be up there everyday. Luckily, thanks to my hardworking husband, I can stay home and we can relax knowing our son is actually LEARNING (who knew?) and not being indoctrinated.

The children, which is exactly what they were, had no clue the seriousness of the whole thing.
The girl had figured out she was pregnant. I guess she didn’t realize they would know how pregnant she was when examined at the hospital and that it did not occur on this trip.
She made a false allegation to shift blame from herself without a thought to the harm she could have caused the boy.
The boy thought the whole thing was a joke and when questioned kept laughing and saying “with her?” Finally he was told point blank “get serious, this can destroy you and your future”.

The time between the girl making the allegation and finding out that it hadn’t was hard on the teachers and chaperones. We couldn’t believe it had happened but kept going over the “hows” if it was proved that it had.

That’s a good case to mention. It’s what happened in that case isn’t it. It still baffles me how a person could set a guy(s) up like that falsely. You have to be a seriously flawed individual to destroy others in this manner.

Punished for not reporting it until afterwards.

The message delivered is that students are better off to not report it at all. Then she would have avoided punishment for exposing the brain-dead chaperones.

I agree, but there are plenty of people who are "seriously flawed individual"s running around loose - many of them in positions of authority. I personally think that a false accusation of rape should carry EXACTLY the same punishment as rape - stiff jail sentence.

Teaching kids that in a liberal society,it is important not to embarrass those in charge.Effectively that is most public schools out there.

Best thing the parents can do is contact the school and get that changed..

I’m surprised at the boy’s reaction, because most guys know darn well what the ramifications of this are.

My suggestion for penalties is related to making darned sure that girls/women don’t use this tactic against innocent boys/men.

Even if this boy were still a child, he would have been marked for life. I just think it’s fair to make sure everyone is playing with the same stakes on the table, if they’re going to play these ‘games’.

I am sure the time between the charge and the truth being revealed, was very trying for everyone involved.

What happened to the girl, once they found out she lied?

My guess is that the informer was not one of Eric Holder's people, and the indecent-actors were Eric Holder's people.

Equal-outcome would dictate that if you punish one of Eric Holder's people, you have to find an excuse to punish someone who is not one of Eric Holder's people.

I’m pretty confident that it was the mother that alerted the media.

This is just another example that common sense is all too uncommon. The school administrators certainly doesn’t have any, and the mother appears not to have any either. Either that or she’s shrewed as a fox and Geoffry Feiger already has his retainer.
