ONLY ON 3: Mother claims driver harassing daughter over books on bus

SUPPLY, NC (WWAY) — A Brunswick County mother says her daughter is being harassed on the school bus by the bus driver. The school principal says that’s not the case.

Tiffany Bradley says a driver for Supply Elementary is harassing her 11-year old. The problem her daughter Taniyah Miller is carrying books and reading them on the bus. Principal Dwight Willis says when the books are not being read, they can be distracting.

“It could create some disciplinary issues on the bus that the bus driver would then have to deal with, which could affect the safety and efficiency of that route,” Willis said. “And so our preference is that children keep their materials in their book bag during their ride.”

Bradley disagrees.

“If it was a safety issue, then it would be in the policy,” she said. “And being as though that it’s not in that policy, the children should have the right to read on that bus and carry their books.”

Bradley says the school system is not helping her fix the problem.
