Over Spanking and Choking Allegations Against Bus Driver- The mother of a Plano ISD student, who recently alleged a school bus driver spanked and choked her son, is now stating that the school retaliated against him for her complaint.
Wired PR News.com – As reported by the Dallas Morning News, Jennifer Khonsari stated her son was suspended for a purported unrelated occurrence the same day she warned school officials that she intended on releasing video footage to the media of the November incident.
Ms. Khonsari further reported that her son, Kaleb, who is currently in the seventh grade, insists the school’s reason for giving him a suspension was unfounded. The middle school student had never been suspended before.
As quoted in the Dallas Morning News report of Plano ISD spokesperson, Nancy Long, who responded via email in regards to the situation, “The district is involved in an ongoing investigation and will not comment on allegations related to this matter.”
The bus driver involved in the incident, Gail Atkins, has been placed on paid leave.
