School bus driver disciplined for mocking crying child, urging other kids to join in

Texas officials fired a school bus driver after an on-board camera caught her calling a sobbing student “crybaby” and urging other children to chime in and mock the girl.

The video, first obtained by ABC News affiliate KSAT-TV in San Antonio, shows the bus driver from Floresville Elementary School in southern Texas berating the student.

“Ready?” she asked the students. “Cry … cry … cry … I want my mama.”

The video was apparently recorded in late February or early March. Monna Perez, whose children ride the same bus, was horrified after seeing the footage.

“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?”

Floresville Independent School District Superintendent Sherri Bays, who did not identify the driver, told ABC News that her behavior was unacceptable.

“I was very concerned with that, and it’s definitely not appropriate,” Bays said. “I think she’s acting very childish and immature.”

The school’s PTA is also disappointed, saying in a statement, “The video is of great concern to everyone who has watched it.”

The driver is no longer employed by the district, Bays told ABC News.

She damn well should be fired.

How dare this woman do such a thing.  It's bad enough she was doing this, to bring the other children in to it.

I would be furious, my child or not.
