I am sickened by what I am seeing in schools these days.
Over the last few days, I have seen videos of teachers being brutalized, someone picking a fight with a student in a wheelchair, and now this.
A third-grade girl being brutally beaten by two boys, one clearly older and far larger than she is.
This is just brutal to watch, but it is something we are seeing more and more at schools and on buses these days.
Viral video shows two boys beating a 9-year-old girl on a school bus in Homestead, Fla. on Feb. 1. The mother of the girl says she has reported bullying to Coconut Palm K-8 Academy but was informed they couldn’t do anything. pic.twitter.com/y3FlfrtNyJ

The mother of the little girl stated, “I got sent the video of my daughter getting attacked by an older kid.”
She continued, “All ages are on that bus, and it’s overfilled.
“It’s very crazy because there’s all this yelling going on in the bus and the two adults on the bus – the bus (driver) and the bus aide, only sit in the front.”
She added, “We’ve had issues before with my son and the kids on the bus, and also in the cafeteria and at dismissal.
“I already drew the line, and I was also on phone with the district – I spoke with someone from the district – and the only thing they could advise me of was to continue to speak with the principal and pull up a bully report.”
A second mother stated, “I’m very upset and disappointed in the response that children now take matters into their own hands with violence.
“This violence has got to stop. It’s starting from somewhere.
“Parents need to do more and pay more attention to their children that are causing these violent acts.”
Miami-Dade County Public Schools responded, “Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) is aware that several video clips involving students from Coconut Palm K-8 Academy are circulating on a social media platform, which promotes prohibited unsafe behavior.
“Miami-Dade Schools Police arrested the offender and they will be charged accordingly.
“Additionally, those involved will be disciplined according to the Code of Student Conduct.
“The safety and wellbeing of our students is of the utmost importance.
“This school district goes to great lengths to promote the values of restraint and respect as well as using social media responsibly.
“We ask that parents reinforce these principles at home.”
