I was told the superintendents and directors of transportation are not really interested in talking to anyone who is attempting to sell them anything because they rather search for what they want after the fact, a reactive approach. So my question is if someone else notices there is a gap and a way for you to improve what you are already doing, why would you exclude them? What's wrong with having the conversation? Bureaucracy, that’s why. After reaching out to a number of schools and transportation depots and put off with "I don’t have time for you", "that's not high on my priority list" and I will get to you later only for them to fire at least one driver per incident since the initial contact to talked to them prior to the incident. So, instead of having the preventative conversation they chose to continue to walk that line of “it will not happen to me” and see where that left them. A child traumatized and parent angry and a media fiasco. In order to make a change you must want the change and understand that as parents, guardians, grandparents and others we have the right to demand more for our children. A child should not have to die, be left on a bus or traumatized in order for someone to know the system is broken.
There is light available but you have to be willing to be a team player and have the conversation.
