My son has been riding the bus for 3wks now. Being his first time he was excited until day 2 of school to this present day. His bus driver bus 9014 or #14 has been allowing her older student helper to hit and verbally abuse my child. Her response to me grade stay with grade they pick their seat first day for the year. Yesterday after noon the school contacted me at work saying my son has been put off the bus for biting the student helper. I spoke to my son and his response was mommy he kept saying " I couldn't do nothing because I'm weak. He hit me, so I bit him back" I don't believe in violence my son knows that so the only thing he with knew to do to defend day himself from weeks of torment was to bite. I have notified the school prior to yesterday and his bus before and after yesterday incident asking for a seat change. As of now I am sorry that's not enough for me because I'm concerned for another child having the same issue. I don't send my son to school to be bullied.
