Durham School Services statement on bus driver issue in New Berlin, Wisconsin:
“"Durham School Services was notified by a parent on Tuesday, Oct. 9, that a bus driver in New
Berlin, Wisconsin, engaged in a political debate with students the previous day and made an
inappropriate remark to a child. Durham immediately removed the driver from service pending
an investigation, which resulted in the termination of the driver. Prior to this incident, the
driver had an incident free record while serving the community as a Durham school bus driver
for more than 20 years. Notwithstanding, the driver’s remark was insensitive and inappropriate.
Durham has apologized to the family. We remain strongly committed to the safe transportation
of students in the community.”"
