ABBEVILLE, Ala. (AP) - The Henry County Board of Education has voted to terminate a bus driver after receiving a complaint that she pulled her bus over for 30 minutes and refused to allow students to roll down the windows.
Dan Skyles, the parent of a 12-year-old student, said the driver refused to allow students to lower the windows during the ride home Monday. Skyles says the driver parked the bus for 30 minutes when she felt the students were being unruly.
Skyles says the extreme heat and students getting home 30 minutes late made the driver's actions unacceptable.
Henry County School Superintendent Dennis Coe said the driver offered her resignation, but later withdrew it. Coe says because the driver is not tenured, he can recommend her termination without stating a cause.
