It was on the local news tonight, a 4 yr old went on a field trip 62miles from home to a children's museum with his school. When his dad went to get him when he was supposed to return, he wasn't on the bus and they left him behind. The mother said she asked to be a chaperone for the trip but was denied because they had enough. 24 chaperones and 42 kids. You would think they would do a head count. I would be so pissed, this makes me nervous sending my son with ppl who are assumed to be responsible. The teacher got paid time off. She should have been fired! The mothers response was that "if she left her son for 5minutes it would have been neglect, and the teacher should be held responsible." The cowardly teacher didn't even apologize herself, it was the principal. The parents went and got him from the museum themselves, luckily the workers there helped him by calling all 50 school's that were there that day. I just think more should have been done. Ppl say it could happen to anyone, but really it shouldn't. They should have double, tripled checked before they even left.

I didn't know 4 year olds could go to school, much less go on a field trip.

Especially on a field trip so far away. They don't make kindergarteners ride the bus for at least an hour!

My thoughts exactly.

Either way though, that's just not ok at all.

Someone would be getting their head ripped off and I would OWN the school and the teacher responsible!
