Theft and Bullying on School Bus

My 8 yr old child rides the school bus with nine 17 year olds who have extreme behavior problems.  I filled a police report against one of the teens today for petty larceny and menacing.  This teen took my child's iPod yesterday and was flicking a lighter behind him.  OPT did remove my child from this route but the practice of mixing ages on school buses must stop before a child gets hurt or killed.  I don’t want to think about what could have happened if this boy lit my child on fire.
