The driver should have checked the bus, sure. But what is a three year old doing on a school bus in the first place?

Good point - what was a 3-year-old doing on a school bus unattended? Was one of the other children supposed to be looking after him?

Here in NYS, Project Headstart is geared around low 3 and 4 year olds, and they are bused. And YES, the drive is responsible for seeing that all the children are safely delivered to school and then back to their homes or other childcare providers. This may be the same situation in MN?

Correction: That should have read: "... is geared around 3 and 4 year olds from low income families."

what if the driver had walked the bus like he suppose to and the boy was hiding under the bench? would the driver still be at fault?

I'd rather bag dicks than drive a school bus: 8 bucks an hour in the freezing cold, with a gaggle of screaming children, and when you fk up you go to prison for a year AND get abused by the readers of TOPIX!
