Wow- Hope your child or future children etc.. don't ever have an unexpected traumatic brain injury or are born with any type of disability. You are not set up to deal with anything.....I am embarrassed for you

Before anyone is convicted of wrongdoing - let the investigation take its course. I work in an elementary school and there are often very different accounts from different people. Don't expect a response from the principal since this is a confidential matter until it is resolved.
Secondly, as a mother of an ADHD child, people should also be aware that there are different levels of ADHD and yes, impulsive behavior is an issue. people that deal with children with special needs need to learn how to restrain an out of control child until help arrives. Under no circumstances should any child be abused.

he should be fired!!!!!!
How about finding out if he is GUILTY first??
There must have been numerous other children on that bus who can tell what truly happened. The story as written seems a little fishy to me!!

And if the child was in fact slapped across the face TWICE - there should have been marks to prove it. There should be cameras on all school buses in my opinion.

If you want to have kids, take some responsibility for them. Why would you let a stranger drive your kid any where?
Then I guess your parents were irresponsible for driving you to school - since I imagine you were being taught by a STRANGER!! Shouldnt everyone be home-schooled??

Most parents (mine included, and myself) have their children driven to school on a school bus - personally I am very sure the school does NOT want EVERY parent driving up to the school individually!!

Absolutely! As in the definition of Blame; to hold some one responsible. The Principal is RESPONSIBLE for our children and their safety. The School Psychologist should be a RESPONSIBLE adult. Yes, blame as in the true definition of the word. When we send our children to school, and are not there by their side, do we not leave them in the hands of RESPONSIBLE adults? If the child was acting out as previously described, it was the Principal's RESPONSIBILTY to PROTECT the others on the bus - children and bus driver included. Instead of hand holding the kid all the way home, why not remove him from the bus and ensure the SAFETY of the others????
Your description is simplified. I guess your a moron. You blame the school, as if saying they are the "Cause" (or the source) of the problem. They are not, its this kid who can't control himself.
Must be a dem.

I know I nailed it.
