Bullied Bus Monitor Karen Klein Announces Retirement



GREECE, N.Y. -- A school bus monitor who was shown in a video being relentlessly bullied by a group of boys said Friday that she will retire.

Karen Klein, a 68-year-old grandmother, told The Associated Press that the decision to leave the job she held for three years was tough but wasn't based on her now infamous encounter with the mean-spirited seventh-graders, who tormented her with profanity, insults and threats during a bus run as the school year wound down in June.
