13. You're soooooo taking this the wrong way.

From my own experience, during my twenties, I worked for a large company (1400 employees, plus hundreds in contractor employees) in administration & I learned a lot from the managers' philosophical points of view. They understood that when their employees were paid well (among other employee benefits/perks, the more productive the employees were apt to be.

I've had part-time jobs in recent years where I've seen how low pay affects morale & attitude. It's in that context that I could imagine the aide & the bus driver (two adults who could have given thought to that student) having a "let's get out of here to get some coffee" state of mind.

Those were my thoughts, secondary to the utterly unacceptable treatment of that disabled girl.
