Karen Klein Bus Bullies Slapped With One-YEAR School Suspension

by at . Comments

No one can accuse the Greece (N.Y.) Central School District of looking the other way when it comes to its disciplinary response to students bullying others.

The kids who harassed Karen Klein with a 10-minute barrage of vile verbal taunts that went viral were suspended for the entire 2012-13 school year.

If you haven't seen it, this video was the reason why ...

The four seventh grade boys who bullied the 68-year-old grandmother to tears were all issued a one-year suspension from school, a one-year suspension from bus use and ordered to perform 50 hours of community service with the elderly.

They must also complete a bullying prevention program.

The four kids will be all sent to the District Reengagement Center - a special alternative education program - as the town is required to provide an education by law.

Klein received national attention after the video of the boys bullying her went viral. Sympathetic viewers donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to her.

She said from the beginning she did not want to press criminal charges, and that she felt sorry for the kids ... though she does not accept their apologies.

What do you think of the kids' punishment?
