School driver charged for fight club on bus

`A school bus driver faces child endangerment charges for masterminding a bullying system among middle school students that included a pecking order of abuse, authorities said.

Michael Cianci allegedly encouraged students in his “Death Cheese Club” — named for the yellow school bus — to use headlocks on other students and push them around.

“It was ’Lord of the Flies’ with adult supervision,” said William Smith, a spokesman for Staten Island District Attorney Daniel Donovan.’
