Last week my 2nd grade daughter got beat up on the bus by a 1st grader. The boy was standing on the seat in front of her, punching her, while another 1st grade boy stood on the seat behind her, screaming at her to "shut her mouth" as she called for the bus driver, who did not hear/see what was happening. I called the bus supervisor and principal. The boy who did the punching admitted to doing it, and all that happened was the principal told him (and the boy who was screaming at my daughter) that they weren't allowed to sit near her anymore. Now, I don't expect a 1st grader to be expelled or anything, but he beat up my daughter! Should I complain about the punishment (or lack there of) that he received?

OMG THAT PISSES ME OFF! I would be at that school so fast they wouldn't even know what hit them! We would ALL be having a conference including the kids parents. No way in hell would I be okay with him literally getting away with that kind of behavior. I wouldn't tolerate one of my children doing that to someone else and I damn sure wouldn't tolerate it happening to my own. Okay, sorry, got a little worked up.

And I agree with ItsJustMe, aren't there mirrors put up in the front of the bus? That way all the bus driver has to do is glance and see the entire aisle of children? When I rode the bus, we had freaking video cameras on our buses.
