Hillsborough school bus driver to be fired for letting son drive vehicle

Tampa

Bus driver who let son drive will be fired

The Hillsborough County School Board voted Tuesday to fire bus driver Theresa Robinson, who admitted she allowed her son to drive a school bus assigned to her.

Robinson was one of the drivers who spoke out publicly about problems in the department in recent months, and at one point she said she expected retaliation for her remarks.

But school officials said there was no retaliation, that Robinson had violated union and district rules. A district investigation found that Robinson's son took the bus, which had no children in it, to have it washed and detailed.
