That’s one disturbing video.
What I see is a bunch of spoiled little girls, pretending that they’re adults. In my view, the bus driver should be given a medal, and every student who refused to accept her authority be banned from riding the bus.
I admit, I don’t know the rules, but I presume that the driver CAN’T just let a student off at their demand, since they’re responsible for that student’s safety. It also doesn’t seem to have gotten physical until the student tried to get into the driver’s area - probably just to get her phone... but who knows? She could have hit something to open the doors, or take off the brake... I can see the driver justifiably using force to keep her out of that area.
Perhaps the driver could have offered to give the girl her phone back, if she would simply sit down, shut up, and wait for someone else to arrive, but with the attitude the teenager was projecting, I somehow doubt this would have been acceptable.
Just sad. Sad that everyone just sat there while things spiraled out of control. Sad that none of her other students told the disrupting student to sit down and shut up. Sad that the driver should be suspended and facing legal action.
No I think it was good that the driver told the kids to stay sitting and stay calm. They all did so, except these two. They only got up when the fight started and it was really between the two girls. Remembering back to jr high though, when a fight broke out, telling kids to get back was like hearding cats. We used to hear “fight” and would run across the play ground to watch.
That sums it up quite nicely.
