In one video, a female driver can be heard saying:
“Don’t tell no other adults about this.”
“First, what you gotta do, is put your foot on the brake.”
We are incredibly disappointed by the actions of our former driver.[…] The driver has been terminated. We have a zero-tolerance policy for employees whose actions may harm or put others at risk.
God forbid we encourage or build self confidence in our children. Good job lady. Some of those children will remember that for the rest of their lives.
While I don’t agree with what she did, back when I started school (1967) it was normal for students that had drivers license to drive the school bus. I think they stopped it in the late 70’s.
If she was their parent, that’s one thing. Some kids learn to drive tractors, lawnmowers, 4-Wheeler’s and motorcycles as soon as their legs are long enough. Learning to drive a school bus from your bus driver with a bus of Kids? Naw, that’s just stupidity.
The sheriff’s department and the Porter Township School continue to investigate the case.
No students were injured or harmed during the incident.
