The family of a four-year-old child studying in kindergarten of a private school in Sharjah filed a complaint against the school’s bus driver, alleging he dropped the child by the roadside, ‘Al Bayan’ newspaper reports.
According to the complaint, the driver left the child on the roadside when no one was waiting for him, which caused the child to panic and cry.
The father of the child told 'Al Bayan' that fortunately, a woman saw and she took details from the child. “She contacted me and I rushed to the place and then filed a case against the school,” he said.
The parents allege that the school management changed the regular bus driver and the new driver did not know the addresses of students, and relied on students to clarify the place of disembarkation.
“My son doesn’t know the real address of our house and pointed the driver to near Zulekha Hospital,” the dad says.
The dad says the school management paid a visit to his house and made a formal apology.
“But I called the Ministry of Education to impose the law that obliges private school to assign supervisors in school buses,” he said.
