The little brat shold have been sitting down and behaving. Braking hard is about the ony thing a drive can do these days to calm down the little animals.
Listen to the bus driver say.

One reason I would not be a bus driver, rowdy kids.

They have no respect, don't know how to act.

But this guy is definitely in big trouble.

I agree, I drive a school bus. If the facts are correct in this article, this driver is out of line. Kids are defiant.He should have listened to his driver. Remember, there are two sides to every story.
It is my hope this was not intentional.

some of you act as if every kid is precious instead of a dime for many dozen. If the kid had been hurt to badly, there are so many more where he came from.

How dare you say they aren't! EVERY CHILD is precious! Sadly, not all parents take that attitude, sometimes school is the only place a child is given attention at all. So whatever crawled up your ass and died, please pull it out. EVERY CHILD IS PREDSCIOUS!

The boy shouldn't have been standing up. He was told to sit down. Bus drivers as well as teachers should be able to paddle kids like this who refuse to follow the rules. If something happened in front of the bus and the driver hit it and this yard ape was up running around he could be thrown through the windshield of the bus. Then the parents are gonna cry and wanna sue. But they do the same thing if somebody tried to make him sit in his seat.
