Bullying on the School Bus
There are over a half a million school buses on the road every day in the U.S. alone. These buses are usually driven by caring and responsible adults. There are very few yearly fatalities on or involving a school bus. Tears on the Highway presents a ‘what if’ scenario. ‘What if’ children were being so disrespectful to the driver and fellow peers, by engaging in misbehavior and bullying, that it would directly contribute to a driver losing control of the bus. This hard-hitting film does not focus on school bus safety. The film is about school bus BULLYING and what ‘could’ go terribly wrong. This story DOES go terribly wrong, resulting in lives both lost and forever changed.
From Thomas Brown, the creator of numerous award-winning educational films, comes a powerful, thought-provoking and heartbreaking film about how bullying can change and affect the lives of victims, the bystanders and the bully themselves. This film contains some scenes that might be upsetting to more sensitive or younger audiences. It has been successfully tested on grades 3-8. DVD comes with a discussion guide.
