Athena Middle School Reviews
ive just seen the video of mrs kleine being bullied on the bus by pupils she was supervising, i would just like to say ive never been so angry and disgusted and i hope that since you have the evidence and know names that these boys have been delt with very harshle, in fact i believe that this should be made a police matter and would hope that it has and they are beeing taken to court and receive harsh punishments. if this does not happen they will think they have been given the right to do this , not just to mrs kliene but to anyone else that they feel like abusing . i aplaude the lady for not falling to their level and giving them a mouth full it must have been very tempting and very hard to stay so calm, i admit i didnt watch it to the very end as i found it to painfull. some things do bother me though , why did the driver not intervine, i hope this was because he radioed in for police back up to meet the bus at the school , if not why not?. have these boys been excluded , if not are they still alowed on the bus, if they are wat precautions are you taklin to make sure that this r anything like it cant happen again. i live in wat is considered a deprived area in the uk , there is a lot of unemployment and crime but this kind of behaviour would not be tolerated by the schools, police and the general public. those children would not be allowed to travel on the bus again their parents would have to make alternative arangments for them to get to school, which ever one they ended up at as its quite likely that they would be excluded . yes there is bulliying here as there is everywere and always will be, but once a problem is identified the schools do everything in there powers to resolve the situation, not always sucsesfully but they do try and if it continues they exclude, ok this may seem like passing the buck , but other agencys get involved and the fammily are put into the hands of social services. lastly if my child came to your school and this was the norm for behaviour im sure i would move them very quikly
If this is the school where those kids tortured the Bus Monitor with some of the sickest and most ignorant remarks that could ever come out of a human being then I think you should just close your doors. The fact that there was not another adult to step in and put these ignorant,pathetic excuses of boys in their place is ridiculous. What failures these boys are and their families for having raised such sick,hateful, and disrespectful human beings.
Judging by the YouTube video of the students bullying an elderly lady on a bus - I think the principle should be thoroughly humiliated by his students. Perhaps some recourse should be taken? (Durr) I'd like to see those boys named, shamed and made to publicly repent and apologise to this lady - as they so publicly humiliated her. The school should be intervening here, what kind of place is this???
