First of all the childs needs are what comes. What happens when the bus driver tells her make the child stop crying. I think there is a fine line with a baby and a teen eating on the bus. Who make the rules. It is men and woman who don't ride school transportantion. They could of made exceptions. At least the girl is still going to school and raising her child. I was a teen parent. Fight it all the way. As for the school board and trans----you need to look @ the whole picture. I find you in the wrong and it upsets me..Maybe she will drop out and not finish school , is that what u want her to do? Schools always think they know best, in this case--ur wrong

At least this 16 yr old is tring to take care of things, If she can't bring a bottle on the bus to feed the child maybe the school board would be happy if she breast fed instead, when an infant is hungry you feed them, a little bit of common sense should be in order there are enough morons in this world we don't need more

Life is hard enough for a teen mom. I give her praise for knowing what her child's needs are and taking care of those needs! You can make a small child through adulthood wait and follow the rules but not an infant. God forbid she would have followed the rules, not fed her child and something would have happened to him. She is doing the BEST that she can and it sounds like a good job GIVE HER A BREAK!

The rules sucks! who wants to hear a baby cry for three hours nobody. At least she was trying to feed him or her I just don't understand what was the big deal with feeding the baby.

The bus driving should be ashame of hisself what a nut. I guess he had nothing else to do so that made him feel like a big man kicking a mom and her baby off the bus. NUT!!!!!!!!!!

Do it Doogie, alot of school's nowadays have classrooms where adults look after your kids while your in class. They did it at my High school, and it worked out pretty good!

I think an acception should be made for this teen mother & her special needs child. Give her some credit for at least tending to the needs of her son!

Acting like a responsible parent and what does it get her. Kicked off the bus. This driver should win a Darwin Award for his actions.
