Your Turn: School Bus Drivers

This week's "Your Turn" segment goes to Joan Smith. Smith is one of many people who submitted comments on our Facebook page following an accident in Gonzales involving three school buses. Many people offered general criticism of school bus drivers, and Smith, who is a former driver, offered a rebuttal.

In her words: We bus drivers know all parents say the same thing, "My child would never act like that, they know better." Guess what parents? These students know better, but at times your child is a bully, and spits on people, mainly the driver. Your child walks on seats, flips over seats, flips off other drivers, and draws very nasty body parts on the windows. Yes, your child would never do such a thing, but they will and they do. Do not cuss out your child's school bus driver until you have driven in her place.

That's Joan Smith's turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, visit us on Facebook or send an email to
