Ok, this ticks me off. My son rides the short bus and there are eight kids with him. There are also seat belts in every spot. Most of you know I had a long talk with Big Boss Friday, and he told me that Bus Driver was wrong for not making the bigger kids belt in. Well, my son still had not belted in today, so I called Director of Special Needs at School to ask if the bus drivers were supposed to assure the kids were belted in. He said that, strangely, although it was against the law to drive without a seat belt, that in school buses, most buses had no seat belts at all and that older kids did not, by law, have to belt in. I didn't get it. At any rate, I told him to please make sure Bus Driver made my son belt in. I mean, wow. Just because he's fourteen, I don't want him killed if Crazy Bus Driver crashes the bus. So now he'll be the only Older Kid wearing a seat belt, and he won't be happy. What would you do? Am I making a big deal out of nothing by demanding that they seat belt my son into the bus? No other parents have said anything (or maybe they don't know). By the way, today was first day without Prejudice Bus Driver and it was great!!!! She is on five day suspension. I don't know what will happen after that, but I sure don't want to work with her again, and I definitely still don't want her to drive my son unless I'm sitting in the back of the bus, taping every word she says. Thoughts?
