Riverdale resident and PGCPS Employee at Glenn Dale Elementary School Jason Jamar Howard, 30, has been arrested by Prince George’s County police (PGPD) and charged with sexually abusing a student at the school.
Based on preliminary investigations—including notification from the victim’s parents—police believe that Howard sexually abused a child at Glenn Dale Elementary on April 17.
According to the charging documents, the confession stemmed from an incident Wednesday in which a teacher saw Howard sit next to the child, reach his hand up the girl’s skirt and put his hand inside her underwear.
The teacher notified the principal of the incident. The child then told her parents, who contacted police.
Once arrested, Howard, an aide at the school, told police he had fondled the student about 10 to 15 times during the current and last school years, according to charging documents.~~> (Read more –Washingtonpost) (NBC-News) ( Bowie-Patch) (WUSA9) (Gazzette) (PGPD)

This is really sad and unfortunate for the 8 year old that was abused and taken advantage of in an environment where it should be safe and conducive for learning. Looking at the student to teacher ratio it is 14 to 1. Thank God for the vigilant teacher. Hopefully at the schools we could implement in the beginning of the school year teachers and students behavior appropriate and inappropriate interactions. And steps they should take if they have been violated. The Principal and the staff at the Glenn Dale school need to work on there observing skills the aide molested the child 15 times at the school. Parents rally together to bring about change and to help clean up and get rid of principals And teachers that are not effective.
