NY school bus monitor 'fine' with bully punishment; wants to meet boys

  • Print

NEW YORK, N.Y. - The upstate New York school bus monitor who was bullied by four seventh-graders says she's satisfied that they're being suspended for a year.

Speaking one day after the boys' punishment was announced, Karen Klein told The Associated Press on Saturday that she wants to meet with the boys who tormented her to ask them why they did it.

Klein told the AP she feels "fine" about the school system in the Rochester suburb of Greece handing down a year suspension and keeping them from regular bus transportation.

The students were caught on video mercilessly taunting the 68-year-old Klein on the bus.

She says the best part of showing her ordeal to the public is that it has inspired parents to talk to their kids and teach them what they shouldn't do.
