New York State Will Investigate Buffalo Bus Abuse Allegations
Buffalo Schools will have their bus drivers and system looked at inside and out while the State will be investigating two separate allegations of sexual abuse on their buses.
According to WGRZ:
The Buffalo lawmaker questioned whether the state's school bus drivers are properly trained to recognize and intervene in cases of sexual abuse following reports of two unrelated incidents on school buses in November and December.
"The state Education Department is working to ensure that all school buses in New York state are operated at the highest levels of safety and security for our most precious passengers and that appropriate corrective actions are taken where necessary," Elia wrote.
She said she has directed the Pupil Transportation Safety Institute, the contractor that reviews allegations of fraud, waste and abuse, to investigate the allegations in Buffalo.
