Harrison County School Board Suspends Bus Driver Until Further Notice

A Harrison County school bus driver accused of inappropriately texting a young girl is suspended without pay until further notice.

Wednesday evening during a special meeting, the Harrison County Board of Education decided to make Stanley Coleman's suspension stay in effect until further notice until all legal matters are taken care of.  Three weeks ago, he was arrested for supposedly telling a 13-year-old he wanted to perform sexual acts on her. The girl said last year that Coleman touched her inappropriately.

"At the recommendation of the superintendent, in agreement with Mr. Coleman, until the legal issues he's facing are addressed, satisfactory addressed. Then the superintendent will come back to us with any further dispensary action she feels as necessary at that time," said Harrison County School Board President Mike Queen.

During his suspension, Coleman will not be permitted to drive a school bus or be on school board property.

Wouldn't it be nice if our Dept of Education REQUIRED background and criminal checks on all school board employees from the office to the teachers, janitors and bus drivers BEFORE hiring them?

It appears sexual perverts/pedophiles are being hired in droves in our school system. Does the Board of Education care? Obviously not!!
