Nebraska City school district officials are examining busing policies after a 6-year-old boy was dropped off 15 miles away from his home.
School officials say the boy wound up so far from home because he got on the wrong bus Friday when he left Northside Elementary School in Nebraska City.
The bus driver told the boy that Union was the last stop, so the boy got off.
A construction worker spotted the boy walking west along a highway and crying, and the worker helped the boy call home.
Superintendent Jeffery Edwards say this was a mistake that never
should have happened. The district is revising its policies to make
sure similar mistakes won't happen again.
The boy's mom, Bethanie O'Flaherty, says she has pulled her son from the district.
