Mother Outraged She Cannot See Video of School Bus Bullying Incident

May 17, 2012


The video of an alleged bullying incident on a school bus from Carter G. Woodson Elementary School in Somerset County is being kept under wraps by local officials.

Jenna Howard said that last Friday her son Caleb Marshall was crying and upset telling her that another boy had physically hurt him while they were riding on the school bus together.

WBOC-TV reports that Caleb said the boy had punched and kicked him on the side of the head and knocked him down to the ground.

The student said the boy then started stomping him on the head.

It was all caught on a camera installed inside the bus.

But Somerset County school officials refused to allow the mother to see the tape.

WBOC also was denied access to the video.

In a statement the school said that the parents had been given the appropriate information.

The student who allegedly attacked Caleb has been charged.

And the case is now in the hands of the Department of Juvenile Services.
