Violence in school settings is an increasingly visible element in our state’s education system. Too many school facilities contain real hazards to the health and safety of teachers, school-related professionals and students.
Careless drivers pass school buses stopped with their red lights flashing more than 50,000 times a day in New York State.
We expect drivers to not only drive safely but also to monitor our children on the bus and during crossings. It's neither reasonable nor fair to expect a driver to do all of these things.
Civil Service law needs to change to ensure fair due process hearings for employees facing disciplinary charges.
