The incident unfolded Friday afternoon on the ride home from Forwood Elementary School, according to the 7-year-old's mother, Aisha Williams-Gray.When the school bus rolled up to her Woodacres apartment, several students carried her crying daughter off the bus, she said."
The little girl had a concussion from the attack. Over jellybeans. The mother is upset that the school doesn't separate the bigger kids, but that isn't the answer. The answer is dealing with the issue of kids and violence. The attack is not even a minute long. It's not fair to say the bus driver didn't respond, it could take well over a minute to find a place and stop the bus. However, there is zero mention of any response from the bus driver at all. If that's the case I can see why the school might be in hot water.The kids were all saying that there had been a fight on the bus and that the driver didn't stop it and kept on driving to reach our stop."The children told Williams-Gray that the fight had been provoked by a fifth-grade girl, who bullied and then attacked her daughter when she wouldn't give up her jelly beans.
Kids mirror what they see. That may be the most terrifying thing about this. This is how they perceive us, and in their uncanny no-bullshit kid way, they see right through us. And this is what they find at the core.
