My daughter's friend came home with her today, and told us that on her bus to BOCES (for her Tech-Career program) there was an issue with a group of students and the Principal was called to assist so the bus could leave the school.
The Principal ended up taking 2 students off the bus, but not before stating to the entire bus "you are disgusting punks". What a great way to be a roll model for staff,students and community. She would have some explaining to do if I was a parent, and it wouldn't be over the phone.

If you have such a problem with what you heard from a second source then call the school and make an appointment to see what was said and how it can be corrected. Obviously the principal is reading this and everything you ever hear on here is the truth.

Read it...It wasn't a "second source". It was from the first person who was ON the bus, and was referred to as one of the "you are disgusting pigs". I am sure her office will be very busy today, but she'll have her AP and Superintendent standing behind her to support her.

So kids always tell the truth 100% and never embellish?? If the ENTIRE bus was "disgusting pigs" why didn't the principal kick them ALL off the bus?? I will bet anything the comment was directed at the 2 trouble makers

If this is a first person story, did the first person tell you what the students were doing to cause the disruption? I understand it is the principal's duty to stay professional at ALL times but depending on the disruption and EVERYTHING the trouble makers said to the principal, the principal may of had a momentary lapse or reason.

Big Dogs,
In your first post you quoted him as saying "disgusting PUNKS" and yet minutes later quoted him as saying "disgusting PIGS".
Please, go to the source, and find out the truth.

If she called them disgusting punks as you say.....then they were behaving like disgusting punks! A principal should NOT have to be called to remove kids from a secondary school bus EVER! It shows that parents have not taught and demanded respectful behavior. It is dangerous to the students to have these disruptions on a bus. When kids end up behaving or being disgusting punks from lack of good parenting, the parents are offended? Please! Somebody has to tell them so don't kill the messenger.If I had a kid on that bus, I would be yelling over how my child is exposed to the disgusting punks who think they can do anything they want because they are supported by ignorant, enabling poor parents. If it doesn't apply...let it fly. If it does, control your kids. I feel sorry for the principal who has to worry about everybody!

Big Dogs, if you were not there, then it is second-hand. Maybe if the kids weren't disgusting punks, the principal wouldn't be in that situation.

I have found that sometimes adults who actually stoop down to the students level of talking (ie: "disgusting punks")they will actually listen better to the adult. Sometimes students will disrespect adults more when they are professional because A. the student doesnt care of the consequences, and B. the student knows that the adult cannot legally do anything to hurt them. Therefore i have found that if you sometimes act or talk to the students in the manor they talk to others, you have a better chance of them listening. That way they know your down to earth, and maybe they would think about what they did wrong sooner than later after the consequences worsen.

I am not at all surprized by this situation.This administrator talks to the students with disrespect on a regular basis.What's even worse she speaks to the parents in the same manner.Many people ,including myself, have complained about her behavior to the superintendent and to the school board and nothing gets done.It is such a shame that in a school where we have such great teachers they allow the principal to act in such a way.She calls kids names,looses control while screaming at kids in public without knowing what is going on,and acuses kids of behavior without evidence.In a time when there are so many programs about bullying,it is such a shame that at Romulus the bully is the school principal.

This thread is a good example of why so many kids are out of control these days.

Instead of worrying about what the students did to get yelled at in the first place, people are up in arms that the administrator called a spade a spade.

Why are you sure it needs to be corrected? Maybe they actually were disgusting punks. If so, why would it be wrong to identify them as such?

Kids should be corrected and punished if need be but adults should act like adults not like crazed brats with a little power

For some the TRUTH may hurt is my guess. Another guess is the kids added to the story and convieniently left out important facts in order to get others to take their side.

Does Romulus School have any plans for trauma counselors to be on site. I'm almost sure these poor little kids have never in their life's heard such talk by an adult!

My guess is these "poor little kids" could use a boot in the backside.

Is it me or do people need to develop a thicker skin?

I cant imagine what the emotional blowback would have been if a tounge was stuck out or God forbid cooties were mentioned on the bus.

What would the principal do if a student bad-mouthed a teacher?

I wasn't making a joke about trauma counselors.I'm concerned about their mental health, this could affect their behavior as they grow into adults.
