BREAKING NEWS: More Bus Exposure Allegations!

One of my contacts from Howell forwarded me this just posted on the LCP & A's homepage:

Police, school officials investigate bus exposure

Howell Public Schools officials and police are investigating an allegation an 11th grade male student “exposed himself” to about 10 other students on a district bus Tuesday.

Superintendent Chuck Breiner said today that he was notified late Wednesday evening about the allegation. Principals are interviewing potential witnesses today.

Additional information was not immediately released.

Having ridden the bus for years, I can't say I'm surprised, but I can say I'm disappointed.

Across the community, leaders are calling for action. But when the problems come from the students themselves and not from HPS employees, the answer lies there as well. A solution requires changing the atmosphere of the student body. Much can and should be done by the school (i.e., stop advocating unrestrained sexual abandon), but we must realize that this is a cultural question that will not be fixed simply by turning on the bus lights or punishing offenders.
