An aid on the bus would solve the problem.
I likewise feel aids on the bus would be a great help for more reasons than one.
An aid can help children that someone driving should not assist. A driver
needs to concentrate on the road and that only. Background checks need to be
done on anyone who works for school districts. Parents need to feel comfortable
in letting their children go to other adults all day long and not worry about
them being sexually abused. Bus drivers aren't the only ones I've
read about. There is always a teachers name in the papers for the same thing.
