CLEWISTON Fla., - It was a week ago that WINK News first showed you disturbing video of a bus driver telling students it's OK to hit back if one child strikes another, and even calling students offensive names.
WINK News is learning that the bus driver has been suspended for two weeks with out pay. She will also be re-trained upon her return and even undergo sensitivity training.
WINK News first learned about this when a concerned mother contacted us, after she feels the district did not do an adequate job responding to the allegations.
She tells WINK News, "Just like every other child would get punished, I need to see her get punished too, because it's not right."
The assistant superintendant also says that if the bus driver acts in such a way again, she will be terminated from the position.
