    Let me see if I got this reight school gets out around 3:00-3:30, she was assulted on the way home from school at 8:30pm….I know it says she stayed lated but I don’t see a teacher staying for 5 additional hours to help one student and isnt it a little late in the year to get caught up on school work?

    YOu are mistaken. Ther ARE a few good teachers still out there! My son receives help from a teacher and she has stayed with him for at least 3 hours after school is out helping him with homework and projects to help him succeed. Not all teachers quit when the bell rings, some of them do take the extra time to ensure all students are succeeding.
