Bullying and Aggression on the School Bus: School Bus Drivers' Observations and Suggestions
deLara, Ellen
Journal of School Violence, v7 n3 p48-70 2008
Every school day bus drivers are responsible for transporting children safely over many miles, yet they are rarely polled for their opinions or contributions to school safety. School bus drivers are in a unique position to inform the discussion on aggressive behavior during the school day. This exploratory study collected information from school bus drivers about student behavior on their buses and drivers' perceptions of school administrators' interest in their input. Thirty bus drivers from suburban and rural school districts in upstate New York participated in this action-research inquiry. Data were gathered from surveys and semi-structured individual interviews. Participants provided recommendations to school personnel to decrease bullying and aggressive behavior on the buses.
