My parents would have busted me up for doing anything even remotely close to this.

And I would do the same to my kids.

Rotten litte rodents.

This is appalling! Everyone of those kids that verbally abused that poor lady should be permanently be expelled from all public schools.

Their parents should take a stand against such horrible actions, and ground them for a year, and take away all access to internet and cell phones. They should make them help the bus monitor, by doing all her yard work, house work, shopping and cooking for a year, with ONLY kindness portrayed at each visit, along with sincere apologies.

What in the world has happened to our young children that they would even consider such terrible actions?

Fired?
She got in the face of one of those kids, she would not only be fired but probably sued by the parent of the dumpling on some trumped up charge.

Wake up, this is 2012 where lawyers rule.

If only there was some retired person who take these "little angels" under her wing and teach them how to respect adults.

Perhaps home school them for several years to improve their disposition.

Oh wait that's right it is the job of the PARENTS to teach them these things.

We focused on teaching these kids the world owes them something and fluffed their egos.

Now we’re shocked we have a generation of narcissists who think they’re owed the world?

What do you want me to say?

When I was a kid, if a kid started this crap(and it did happen some times with substitute teachers) the rest of the class would serve up a beat down on the little scumbags simply out of pity.

You have pointed out one of the biggest issues in public schools - parents not raising their kids.

This is a HUGE reason that public schools aren’t being successful - the kids are not held accountable for their behavior b/c the parents [many of them] will not raise their kids.

Imagine this kind of behavior in a class room where teachers who care about kids are frustrated by punks like this. In the interest of full disclosure - I am involved in my grandkids’ schooling as they attend near my home. I see this kind of crap almost every time I’m there - reading or going on a field trip or whatever.

So while there are major problems w/ teachers - that is not the case in NE GA. The problem ‘round here is parents.

I’ve got an idea. Let the little punks fail when they get out of school. Don’t give them entitlements. Let them sink or swim. Their disposition will either deteriorate where they end up in prison or they will straighten up and make something of themselves. This way everyone wins except the brat if he goes to prison.

I could not get through 6 minutes of this. I’ve not seen anything like this before. These kids should be expelled - end of story.

When I went to junior high school, in the days when Dr. Max Rafferty was our state's Superintendent of Public Instruction, this sort of behavior would have been unthinkable. I regularly took the bus, and once when the kids got too noisy, the driver actually parked, got up and confronted his passengers, threatening to "get rough" if they didn't quiet down. We could tell that he meant what he said, and the bus quickly resembled a Trappist monastery.

If these kids were taught good manners and decorum in school, they might amount to something. Instead, they’re being groomed to become part of the permanent underclass in these “laboratories of rudeness” we call public schools.

In other words, the school system is functioning as intended.

The poor bus monitor probably thinks this system is designed to help young people get a good start in life, and as a result of her confusion found herself stuck in a position of having to actually interact with these underclass-trainees.

"Accountability"

You are so right! That is the way kids are being raised today - no accountability. No guidlines. No boundaries. No rules. No swat on the behind by parents, teachers or principals.

I remember the movie from many years ago, "Blackboard Jungle". It was frightening then - but is reality today (thanks to the Federal Government taking over the 'education' of our children.)

My own daughter told me, "We dont USE the "N" word in front of our children!" (The "N" word, being the word "NO".)

If the children hear that word, they go into a screaming fit.

I raised my children to be accountable for every action. I taught them that there is a consequence for everything they do.

I don't know what happened for her to take on that liberal way of raising her children - but I have a pottery PIG with a sign around it's neck that says, "Not my pigs - Not my farm", and when I am tempted to try (again) to help direct her, I touch that pig, and zip my lips.

My raising was over, when she married. (But sometimes it is very hard to stay out of it!)

Fired? She got in the face of one of those kids, she would not only be fired but probably sued by the parent of the dumpling on some trumped up charge.

Which was the point of the kid recording it. They were hoping to get a retaliatory reaction that they could edit out of context, that would serve as a pretext to a lawsuit.

If she would have even brushed a hand on one of those kids the school district would be looking at a multi-million dollar lawsuit and the taxpayers would be further hosed (over and above having to pay to educate these feral children in the first place).

Excuse me, if you wish to hurl personal attacks and call me an idiot for my understanding of the role of a bus monitor on a bus, then so be it. Your intelligence level is reflected well in your own words.

A tip for your future replies: proofreading and capitalization go a long way toward demonstrating the intelligence of your message.

When I grew up in the 60s my dad was the local high school
agriculture science teacher. My siblings and I were well
known my most teachers and school staff in most of the
local schools so we were in check all of the time. In
those days if a kid disrespected ANY adult you could bet
he/she would catch hell at home. Once I had a school bus
driver who was quiet but had a reputation as a hard@ss.
Whenever he had enough bad behavior he would pull the
bus over, open the door, stand-up, and announce to the
offensive kid(s) that they could stop the nonsense or
hit the bricks. Old Steve didn’t have to do that too often
and he was always nice to me. All the classified staff
and bus drivers loved my dad because respected them and
showed it.

In this case the kids should be banned from riding the
bus, suspended from school for a few days, or both even
if the sanctions are not enacted until the next school
year or they are advancing to another school.
They also need to be compelled to attend an anti-bullying
training.

My guess is that the monitor might have been involved
in previously disciplining one of their friends. And,
I certainly can’t explain why a hard of hearing mon-
itor would be assigned to a bunch of middle schoolers.
What’s up w/the busdriver?

What's really disturbing is towards the end of the video at least one or possibly two of the kids actually referred to cutting her gut open a finding McDonald's big Mac spilling out, etc. Actually fantasizing cutting her. That goes beyond just bullying. They are imagining stabbing or cutting her. These kids are potentially very dangerous.

The schools are on a mission to turn kids against fat like they were on a mission to turn kids against smoking. They go super overboard in their brain washing.

This is not an excuse for the feral kids, but it is important to notice the chidren focused on the woman’s fat body. They are encouraged in schools to harass their parents about fat and unhealthy food which is really an invitation kids to be disrespectful and bossy with parents. They did this with smoking, too. And with homosexuality.

Given the children were focusing their disrespect and hate towards the woman’s fat body - even mentioning she’ll die of diabetes, I wonder how seriously the school has taken the First Lady’s war on fat. Were they drilling the kids against fat like they have done in other campaigns of behavioral change they run...against sexual harassment againt women, homophobia, racism, smoking, global warming, etc. During these campaigns of hysterical brain washing, they tell kids to go after their parents which is basically disrespectful.
