The Story of 'No Story'
11-Year-Old Is Left Unattended on School Bus
By Sopan Joshi Washington Post Staff Writer Friday, June 27, 2008; B03
An 11-year-old boy stayed unattended on a bus operated by D.C. public schools for about two hours Wednesday after the driver and an attendant, who delivered other children to school, failed to notice him.
Good god, another instance of the abuse of children in the hands of ruthless and intolerably insensitive public servants. When will the agony stop?
The boy, who apparently had fallen asleep, woke up in a bus parking lot on New York Avenue NE. He opened the bus door and was then driven to his school, the High Road School on Kansas Avenue NE, by another school bus driver.
Apparently, neither the first driver nor the attendant realized that he boy had not disembarked at the school, nor did they check the bus before parking it. The bus transported only four children, including the boy.
The driver apologized to the boy's mother.
