Seminole County School Bus Transportation Complaint - Poor Rules - High School Buses
SEMINOLE COUNTY, FLORIDA -- I can't believe the school transportation will not let children ride buses that are not their typical bus, even with written parental permission. The school assigns homework to students that needs to be completed outside of school. Some students don't live on the same bus route. My daughters friend was told to WALK to our house and would NOT let her on the bus. We live over 5 miles from the school across a busy highway, and near a very busy road. As soon as my daughter got home and told me we headed out to try and find her friend. What if something had happened to this girl? This is High Schoolers we are talking about here, not grade schoolers. I cant believe they would risk the life of a child and let them WALK the streets instead of making sure they are safely arriving to their destination. If this child had been picked up by a stranger, or hit by a car you can count on them being sued. If a child has WRITTEN PARENTAL PERMISSION, LET THEM ON THE BUS.
Someday, some child is going to be hurt from their practices, and Seminole County Transportation Dept is going to have some serious repercussions from it.
