The Northside Independent School District says a fourth grade boy was beaten and kicked in the back of a crowded school bus Friday morning. The students were being taken to McDermott Elementary School off Huebner.
Apparently a 4th and 5th grader beat up the kid. The other kids were nice enough to inform the bus driver that someone was lying unconscious in the back of the bus. I guess peer pressure allowed for that much but wouldn’t allow for anyone to report to the bus driver what was happening when it was actually happening and maybe prevent the kid from reaching the unconscious state to begin with.
What kind of children are we raising so that they are willing to watch two human beings hurt another without saying anything? (To stop it, I mean, rather than encouraging it.)
