BEAUFORT, S.C. (AP) - A mother who says her
children have been bullied on the school bus is suing the Beaufort
County School District.
The Beaufort Gazette
reports that Christina Chandler filed the lawsuit
Monday. Chandler says her 6-year-old son and 8-year-old daughter have
been hit and verbally bullied since school began earlier this year.
The lawsuit asks that the
district and bus company stop the bullying and seeks compensation for
emotional damages and medical bills.
Neither the district nor the company that manages its bus fleet commented on the suit.
Chandler says district
officials said they would take two months to look into the situation
after she gave them a petition in support of putting cameras on school
buses. Chandler says that's too long to let bullying continue.
