The girl's mother, LadyAshley Myers, is now calling for the driver's termination. She tells the station that she called a district office inquiring her daughter's whereabouts when the girl didn't return as scheduled. Officials later found out that LadyOurlove had been dropped off at Mary's Place, a homeless shelter and the last stop on the school bus route.
A staff member at the homeless shelter called the district office, notifying them that a child that doesn't live there had been dropped off. Officials wanted to place the girl in a taxi to be sent home, but Myers refused.
Myers says that while her daughter enjoyed her first day at Bryn Mawr Elementary, the girl is still traumatized by the incident. LadyOurlove is enrolled in the Hi-5 early learning program.
The situation Myers encountered mirrors a handful of incidents across the country involving busing oversight. Just last week, a special education student in Simi Valley, Calif. was left alone on a school bus for more than four hours.
