Charge: Students shown inappropriate pic

By Washington Post editors

A Stafford County school bus driver has resigned after she was accused of showing students an inappropriate photo, NBC 4 reports.

The principal at A.G. Wright Middle School was notified on Wednesday that a day earlier the bus driver showed the students a pornographic photo. School officials say they have not seen the photo.

But fellow bus driver and friends of the accused driver say she showed students a photo of a new puppy on her cell phone. A student then took her phone and went through other photos. The driver's friends say she was forced to resign or be fired.

The incident has been referred to the sheriff's office.

i think it's the student who went thru her other photos who should be punished, not the driver.

This is pretty sad story. I feel for the bus driver who was just trying to show a puppy for chrissakes.

First of all, how did the child take over your phone. You were showing pictures not passing around your phone. She should'nt be fired for what, I am assuming was adult porn, on her phone, but why let the children or anyone handle your phone in the first place. Their are things on my phone from my wife that are for my eyes only. I always keep that in mind.

I am a co-worker and friend of this driver.... just so you know, it wasn't "porn." It was a mass text message, one of those forwarded a billion times. It was a cartoon-type picture of a man's penis. The only mistake she made was trusting those kids with her phone.... a lesson for everyone. Thank you for listening, unlike our supervisors.

It doesn't sound like she intentionally meant to show the kids the off-color picture, however, I don't understand why an adult is passing their phone around to kids to show a picture of a puppy.

What ever happened to boundaries between adults and children? It seems like many adults are too preoccupied about being friends with kids they teach or supervise.
