    Student Stops Out-Of-Control School Bus, Gets Detention

    SEASIDE, Calif. — A 15-year-old girl who stopped an out-of-control school bus she was riding on was handed a Saturday detention instead because she was skipping school.
    Marina High School student Amanda Rouse was on a bus with 40 elementary school students Wednesday morning when the driver fell out of her seat after a turn and hit her head.
    Rouse jumped up and applied the brakes, bringing the bus to a halt after striking two parked cars. No one was injured.
    She said had asked the bus driver for a ride because she felt sick at school. more: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,338270,00.html

    I would think the driver should be cited for careless driving. The teen felt sick at school, doesn't sound like she was purposely skipping. Think of the lives she possibly saved by being on that bus.

    How totally stupid and inappropriate. Instead of thanking God that someone was on the bus who could actually drive, they're punishing the girl. I'll bet she's the school hero to at least her friends and elementary kids now, and I hope she continues to skip if she's sick.

    LOL...OMG, that is so funny.

    Just when you think you've heard it all (the earlier Skittle's thread), something like this comes along. It wasn't too long ago when someone did something like this they would have been awarded the key to the city, and other awards! What in the &ell is wrong with people?

    I agree with her grandma.

    And that's what's sad... instead of teaching our children that they do good when something like this happens... we teach them instead that it's better to mind your own business and let a school bus full of children get injured or worse... because your reward will be suspension... Sad... so very, very sad.

    She is in trouble with school because she made the wrong decision," said Rouse's grandmother, Sally Correll. "But I can't help but believe that she was where God wanted her to be."
    Amen grandma.

    My question is ....How the h-e-double hockey sticks
    did the driver fall out of the seat?
    If this bus driver was driving so dangerously that even
    she fell out of the seats, how the heck are the kids
    safe?

    Don't ask questions. You might get detention.

    Chalk one up for the homeschool/private school argument.

    I think the bus driver should be the one in trouble. Agreeing to drop off a student at any place other than their destination without an OK from a parent or school official is a big no-no. Not to mention falling out of the driver's seat while driving..... I wonder if this district has privatized bus drivers?
