What would you do if you found out that your child was being bullied on the school bus?
A Minneapolis mom, Tanya Sydney, has been banned from her 10 year-old's school bus stop and school grounds after dressing down bullies who were targeting him during his daily bus ride. She boarded the bus, told the bullies to keep their hands to themselves, and questioned the driver before she was told to leave. Two days later, she received a letter from school officials telling her to keep off school grounds.
According to CBS, a spokesman for the Minneapolis School Board has said, "‘Maintaining a safe and secure environment in the school district, including our school buses, is a top priority.'" Tanya Sydney finds the ban "mind boggling" in light of prevalent bullying, not just of her son, and has filed an appeal.
Would you confront a bully yourself to protect your child?
