This L.A. Teacher Fought the Terror Threat by Assigning a Final Exam

A Los Angeles teacher who was blasted as a “savage” for still assigning a final exam even as city schools were closed over a terror threat said she didn’t want to let terrorism win over her students’ education.

Cassandra McGrath, 30, angered at least one student when she insisted her class still complete a writing test Tuesday shortly after Los Angeles closed all of its nearly 1,100 public schools over an “electronic threat.” She asked her senior English class to submit the final essay from home.
