Congressional School Safety Expert Says School Bus Beating, Evidence Of Poor Management By School Administrators

Dale Yeager a school safety expert says that the recent school bus beating of a 13 year old girl in Marion County School District is indicative of the poor management of students and staff that he sees as epidemic throughout U.S. schools.

Yeager who heads a research team which has provided three reports to Congress on school safety says the lack of training and management is at the heart of school bus related crime.
