Father who boards school bus to defend bullied daughter, issues apology

I have to admit, I am torn by this story. I can feel his outrage. I can also see where he went way over the line. I will say schools do NOT do enough to address bullying of special needs children

In our district, special needs kids have their own bus. I do feel bad for the child and the dad but that was not the way to go about things.

I so feel his pain. I wanted to storm the school bus when my kindergarder said that his previous best friends wouldn't sit by him anymore I can't imagine how angry he was at what those boys did to his daughter. And the boys become the victim now

In the article I first read about this, he talked way more about feeling sorry for having snapped, and not wanting his behavior to be an example or anything-- he really seemed like he felt true remorse for how he handled it, and he knew it was wrong, and wanted to make that perfectly clear. Terrible situation all around.

The thing I think is the most sad is that it got to the point where the dad felt like he had to defend her. The school should have handled this.
