KILN, Miss. (AP) A Mississippi administrator's tirade to students whose parents complained about a hot school bus was caught on video and has been posted online.

The Sun Herald reports the video shows Hancock County Transportation Director Michael Ladner addressing Hancock Middle School students on a school bus Wednesday.

Ladner told the students in the video that it will only get worse if students told their parents. He goes on to say they're in south Mississippi and if the students don't want to live in hot weather, they should move north.

Superintendent Alan Dedeaux says he has received several complaints about the heat on that particular bus and is working on solutions.

1. Here's the video ....

Very frustrated bureaucrat, undoubtedly wrestling with the fact that Mississippi is just about the worst state for education budget:

6. With Respect, I submit Texas as the worst

state for education. Here in Texas we honestly have a saying, "thank God for Mississippi".

7. But that saying means Texas is not the worst, because Mississippi is worse.

IOW, since only Mississippi saves Texas from being at the very bottom, thank God for Mississippi.

12. Nope, MS has to be below TX for the saying to make sense. They are

grateful for being saved from last position by MS.

2. Uuughhhh, God.

I unfortunately live in Hancock Co. these people are all booger eating morons. You can't go one day with out your blood pressure skyrocketing becasue of the shit they say. "Never will be 70◦ degrees" ... so they keep the buses at 105 degrees.

The Ladner name is HUGE in this area, they are into every part of "government" and businesses, I guess they gave the dumbass brother needed a job so they made him head bus driver.

It's is scary as hell down here.

5. This story lacks information.

It doesn't say how hot it actually was on the bus, for example. I guess it had some AC because the adult was talking about keeping the windows closed to utilize it, but I don't feel as if I'm getting the whole story here.

Why are they on a school bus in the beginning of August, anyway?

8. Ac not cutting it

School started back August 4th. The AC in the front of the bus works fine but not in the back. Parents had asked that the ac be turned off so windows could go down but driver refused. Ac works fine by her. The temperatures on the buses get so high because of how long it takes to load them. This particular bus picks up at the middle school which takes between 15/20 minutes then it pulls over to the school next door, parks, turns off the bus and waits for that school to let out. Then those kids have to load up. So bus sits about 30 plus minutes off between loading and waiting. During that time no windows are allowed to go down. All that time with 30/40 kids just sitting with no ac or windows down its gets extremely hot in there! If they would just let the kids put the windows down it wouldn't be as bad.

13. Especially in Mississippi, yikes!

Here in New York, school doesn't start until the first week of September. In my district, classes start September 7th.
