The tragic incident where six-year-old Jeremy Jennings, Jr. fell to his death from the rear door of a school bus in Baltimore County apparently reflected several violations of Baltimore City school policy.

Specifically, the behavior of the youngster, who reportedly started an altercation with another passenger, attempted to exit the moving bus through the front door and then when unsuccessful  exited the read door, should have resulted in the bus pulling over and stopping right away.

The chief operating officer for Baltimore City schools, Keith Scroggins, stated that drivers are trained to pull over whenever students are disruptive or unseated, both of which reportedly the victim was. The boy also was supposed to be in a harness. Many questions also have arisen concerning the adult aides on board the bus and their failure to control the situation.
