Can You Believe This Raleigh, North Carolina?

Raleigh, North Carolina, straight off the news wire:

This is just another example of an inadequate school bus driver.  This five year old kid was hurt on the bus when the bus driver drove right past the kid's bus stop.  According to the parents, the kid required at least one staple in the back of his head because of a gash he sustained while riding on the bus.

Where do some of these school districts hire these bus drivers?  I think that schools and local governments should have more stringent standards when hiring those people who are entrusted with the duty to drive our children to and from school.  This is not a duty to be taken lightly. 

It seems like the schools don't even interview these people:  You got two legs?  Yep.  You got a driver's license?  Yep.  Ok, you're hired. 

These types of senseless accidents must stop.  As a kid, I used to look forward to riding the bus with my friends.  Of course we would goof around but bus drivers all seemed to be pretty responsible.  Someone needs to put the fire under the school's butt to start preventing accidents.
"as a kid" do you think you were able to just the responsiblity of an adult bus driver? And you obviously don't know how the "hiring" process goes, so why guess. GET REAL!
