If your child rides bus 21 in Tupelo you need to be aware of the careless driving of that driver. I have been reporting this for over a year. Transportation dept ..school board..police station..wtva. nobody has done anything. I am saving all my reports because when that crazy driver wrecks, somebody is going to get hurt. By the way, all I got for reporting her to police was a speed limit sign in my front yard. I dont have children on that bus, if I knew parents who had children on there, I would contact them.

They do not pay enough to the drivers to have conscientious ones. Better yet do away with school buses and big schools. Put small schools close to home.

The Daily Urinal's management has a policy that the paper will make no waves regarding city government, and most especially city schools. Only when there is an accident that requires a police report will any mention of a school bus problem be printed. Just look at the turmoil that was required to get any action with the schools last year. And I'll wager that the TPD, including LEO, knows better than to ticket a school bus.

The Tupelo DJ mafia will not post any negative comments on their web site. They also track you.

Same for WTVA as they do not want people bringing things to national attention. It might just cut sales tax revenue. Tupelo is keep in the dark about what goes on.

Need to call Coach Stratton in transportation.

If you know him or see him maybe you could tell him about this conversation and let him read it for himself. I keep thinking the word of the speeding bus will somehow get to the right person, but as of this morning, bus 21 was faster than ever.

Why is it that the taxpayer and bus users do the evaluation on the bus drivers? Why is it only another government employee gets to rate them?

Come over to countrywood or butler road around 7:10 am. You can evaluate. Drive behind this bus if u can keep up. I followed the bus down Coley after he left Butler..he was well over 60 on Coley. Speeding?

Just think if we had small schools close to home and no buses needed.Perhaps we could buy better teachers.

What time does that driver pick up his/her first student? What time does that driver drop off the students at school? What time would the students get to school if they rode there on bicycles? How safe would they be? I hope the driver is using good judgement but if you are free to follow the bus each day why don't you carry your kids to school and eliminate one stop on the route. Maybe other parents on the route will recognize the problem and do the same.

But I can't imagine that the manager of the school buses hasn't been made aware of the complaint and is hopefully looking into it. And why are there no seat belts on school buses?

Dude. I followed that bus as I was going to work. It just so happens that the bus is hauling AS$ down my road as I leave out of my drive way EACH morning. It probably speeds in the afternoon too, but I am at work, so I can't comment on that. I decided to follow that bus one morning down those roads I previously mentioned. By the time we were on Coley, that bus was well over 60--faster than I was going and I was going 60. I have no children in this school system anymore and when I DID, I took them to school myself. Anything else you want to personally talk to me about?? I am worried ONLY about the safety of those children. My only reason for commenting. I would hate for them to be involved in a wreck.
I have contacted the Tupelo Police Department, the Superintendent's office... any other suggestions? I emailed the School's transportation office and got no response.
I am amazed at how you are going to say anything to me that is rude when all I am doing is to try and find a way to get this bus to slow down on those roads with those innocent children. Seems you would be more worried about that than say anything about me taking my kids to school or not.

Have you made an appointment to talk to the Superintendent? You do not get result from a staff that has an interest in protecting themselves.

Call Melvin Carlock at WTVA, he'd love to do a story on this, follow the bus first and video tape it, I did that once in Saltillo and it got their attention real quick after numerous calls on the teacher driving it reckless with my kids on it!

Emotional, high drama accusations usually get divided by 4........ Sometimes 10.

Rod. Are you a bus driver?? heck, you may even be the driver of bus 21. Anyone who gets on here as many times as you have to de-escalate a serious matter such as children's safety? is obviously as guilty.. what's your story??

No I don't drive a bus. Those manual transmissions are too much trouble and I just can't get out of bed before 9:00 or so.

Honestly, lady, I have had my turn at jousting with the windmills at TPSD and wish you all the best and suggest you might have more success with less drama.

If you were worried about your child's safety you would not be living in MS or using the public schools.

Thanks to the both of you fucktards for nothing. I went the proper route in reporting this and got nothing. As for the drama? Which part of anything said was dramatic? And for your info..I dont use the school system. You also obviously hang out on topix or you wouldnt know how often I am on here. Go screw each other. Worthless rednecks.
