Local mom says her son was punched and called racial slur at school By: Bruce Gordon POSTED: SEP 22 2017 07:23PM EDT VIDEO POSTED: SEP 22 2017 07:21PM EDT UPDATED: SEP 22 2017 09:01PM EDT Ridley Park, Pa. (WTXF) - A frustrated mom says her 6th grader was punched by a fellow student and then called a vile racial slur. According to the mom, the school has given her few answers as to what's to be done about the alleged attacker. Sitting in her attorney's Center City office several days later, Liante Robinson is still wiping away tears. "Heartbreaking," she says. Robinson's 11-year-old son Nivre is a brand new 6th grader at Ridley Middle School. On Monday, she says her son got into an argument with a fellow student while passing between classes. Robinson says the other boy-- who is white-- punched her son, scratching his eye. "As they were going inside the classroom, the student then said to my son. 'That's why you are a n-----.' Said that to my son," the mom said.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
