HOKE COUNTY, N.C. — A Hoke County mother is asking the school system for answers after she says her daughter was attacked on the school bus and the bus driver didn’t do anything to stop it.

Sharonda Ferguson said she met with the school principal of East Hoke Middle School Monday to watch video of the fight that was captured on a bus camera.

Ferguson said the video shows her daughter sitting in the front seat when a male student walks up to her and starts swinging.
