Educators at a California elementary school are crediting after-school programming and added instructional time with impressive student achievement. The school's teachers volunteer their time after the regular school day to lead about half the school's students in instruction and supervise homework. "Until 6 o'clock at night, you would think we're still in session," the school's principal said. "Seeing the campus so alive like that, and seeing the parents and students so excited, just makes me and all the teachers want to work harder."
