Parents of students suspended in Clayton County over a school bus incident say the punishment is unjust.
Some of the nine suspended students say they did not take part in the chaos, but what they did afterward got them in trouble anyway.
“So far, based on either admissions or eyewitness accounts, we have nine students that are facing various forms of suspensions,” Vicki Gavalas of the Clayton County school system said. “We’re expecting criminal charges on some of the students and the investigation is ongoing. We still have more evidence to gather.”
Three parents offered another perspective.
They said on a bus full of kids from north Clayton Middle School Wednesday afternoon, other kids were throwing items to the back of the bus, and then toward the front, where the driver is.
