    Way to go. More worried about fees than about the sexually abused student.

      i couldn't help to think the same thing! Is this more about money? The parents of the kids that were allegedly abused have dropped any and all charges against the other student. Seems these parents are going after the ones with money and insurances!!! Sick world we live in. I;d be sure those kids were in prison if something ,god for bid happened like that to my child.
