I ride this bus and I think all 3was in the wrong. The bus driver let the girl and her sister do and get by with everything....so the bus driver should have had better control over the bus and kids......the woman should just talked to the driver and not us and the girl should have just shut up the woman did not need to go to the back of the bus. The woman should have called the law...so to me all 3 was to blame but I am in 3ed grade so what do I now about this stuff
Hmmm...in the 3rd grade and on Topix??

they will just put her on the short bus then, her parents will whine and cry that they cant take her/pick her up because of their jobs, so they will move her to the short bus, that way they still get their all mighty $$$ for this girl to attend school. Its been done before and it will be done again

If the info that I have been given is correct, then yes the student that is causing the problem is the daughter of a "prominent, respected" citizen in the county and since others havent revealed the name/occupation of this person I wont either, I dont know the people, only what i have been told by parents whose children are on that particular bus. there have been many times in the recent years that a student is kicked off the regular bus because of behavior and because the parents whined enough saying because of their jobs if their child couldnt ride the bus they would be absent. Our school system then puts that child on the "short bus" so that the school system still gets their almighty $$$$ for that students attendance, if you dont believe me as the parents of kids who ride "short bus" daily

If its aprivate matter why discuss it in this public forum? Public Schools and student safety are everyones concern.
How many citizens complained when they thought their tax would be increased to help fund education? Why is this matter important to someone who has no children in school and on this bus?

Nothing has come of it cuz there really wasn't anything that needed to be done....except for the upstanding parents to take a switch to their daughter and teach her some manners....at least if she were mine I would have, I would b embarrassed if my child woulda done something like that one....its a disgrace. It's. Shame that the others would have to pay for the girls stupidity and disrespect and her parents laziness and lack of proper parenting....

Schools' report card good overall; science social studies need work

By: Lacy Hilliard
Tomahawk Writer, Photographer

The monthly meeting of the Johnson County School Board was called to order on Thursday, November 8. All members of the board were present and eager to tend to November’s agenda.

First to address the board was Rebecca Wright, a parent of a Johnson County High School student. Wright wished to address a situation involving her child and the parent of another Johnson County student. According to Wright, the parent of the other student boarded the bus Wright’s child was riding in an attempt to confront her child about an unrevealed situation. The parent that boarded the bus was described as combative and confrontational toward Wright’s child and Wright expressed concern that not enough was done by the bus driver to prevent or prohibit the parent from boarding the school bus or confronting the student. Morris Woodring addressed Wright’s concerns and said that he had spoken with both the parent and the bus driver involved in the situation and that the bus driver is no longer employed by Johnson County School System. Woodring also stated that all Johnson County bus drivers are required to undergo several safety training courses that provide training about situations such as this and that due to this recent situation, the training will be reiterated amongst the drivers employed by the school district.

So I guess the bus driver was fired? And why is this other story from the Johnson City Press NOT on topix :
Johnson County school officials probe elementary student's alleged threat
Updated November 16, 2012 3:48 PM
By Staff Report - Johnson City Press MOUNTAIN CITY — An alleged threat made by an elementary student is being investigated, Morris O. Woodring, director of the Johnson County School System, said on Friday.

Woodring said the alleged threat towards a fellow student at Mountain City Elementary School was reported to him by the principal. The principal and the school resource officer are investigating.

"The student allegedly made some comments," Woodring said. "The parents or guardian of the child have been informed."

Woodring said the student has not been in class during the investigation.

I was on that bus and that's a dang lie. The parent got on the bus to tell us to b nice to our driver and stop screaming so she could talk to the driver. Michelles daughter called that lady a ho and a bitch and told her to get off the f-ing bus. That made the parent mad and she told the daughter off for being disrespectful, she never cussed or touched the kid or her phone. The kid threw her phone n the floor and stomped it. And the driver quit cuz the kids on bus wouldn't listen to her, and she told us long time ago she was gonna quit if we didn't behave....michelles daughter is a liar and everbody is too scared to tell the truth, but there r videos in the bus, that's why they're ain't no charges against the parent.

Well, this "Michelle's Daughter" needs her little spoiled Azz whipped on a daily basis...and this "Michelle" needs her azz whipped for not doing it years ago when it would have done some good, and for not "Parenting" her Child! Now, somebody else will do it, when "Michelle's Daughter" gets grown and it will be more than just an Azz-Whipping, I guarantee you! That Kid is going to learn the hard way and it will be ugly! In fact, she'll probably be lucky if she lives through it! Those Temper Tantrums will get you killed in the Adult World!

Who was the parent wo got on the bus and why is everyone protecting her identity? Has she threatened people if they even say her name? I really don't care but find it curious since names are used so openly on this rag. The Tomahawk is a sorry excuse for journalism with their selective memory.

Must be one mean $&tc& to have everyone so scared of her. Someone go to the library and post her name. That way you can't be traced. Has TBI or CPS looked into this as child abuse or Assault? There is more to this than meets the eye.

Some older kids are cruel, unruly, and mean to small kids! If a few parents would beat the snot out-ah some of these brats, well, serving a bit of time in "the orange suit" would be worth every bit of time served! Our small children are away from parents, not because they choose to be, but because the laws demand "going to school". They need protecting from all these trashy thugs!

It is easy to see who you are and you are putting in this same advice under different names.You should be spending time looking at yourself and the child you have raised and think about what you can do to be a better example. Apples do not fall far from the tree.
