    She may have been more proactive.  It may or may not helped.

    She didn't ask to be bullied.
    The kids were absolutely wrong.

    I know there are places that I shouldn't walk alone at night.  
    I know that some reactions encourage bullies to escalate.

    Knowing how to deal with hostile situations is helpful regardless if you are conservative or progressive.

    •  If she got off the bus, she could lose her job. (0+ / 0-)

      Why didn't the bus driver help? Was she afraid that four or more boys would attack her? Only one would not attack her, not even just one bullied her. Egging each other on.

      This is a 68 year old woman. Is it reasonable for her to expect to be assalted on a school bus. In MA, the charge would be assalt on an elderly person. Assalt=threat, battery=touching.

        is not the logical solution to this behavior problem on the bus. If a bunch of Middle School Brats can bully Monitor to leave her job it only reinforces the power they think they have to get rid of the next Monitor, and the next, and the next. The school administration has the responsiblity to give some guidance or punishment that will change the students' behavior.
