Although the kiddies had taken this particular bus many times before they no longer qualified for passage because this bus was now reserved for Hmong-speaking students and ONLY Hmong-speaking students.
The school district apparently apologized for stranding the kids at school without a ride but made no apologies for their blatant discrimination against English-speaking students. Additionally, they have no intention of changing the policy.
This type of anti-American, anti-English language behavior happens often these days but rarely do we find the perpetrators to be so self-righteous and quite frankly, indignant.
Your tax dollars at work...
