4:18 pm
and why that driver doesn't appear in kristen's history, uber tells us it's investigating that too. in the meantime, kristen did file a complaint with uber's insurance company. it requested she sign a settlement agreement, which would prohint her from talking any further about her case. >> they basically didn't want you to talk to us. >> or anybody. i felt like they owed an answer to me. >> kristen never did get an answer about the mysterious she did end up signing that agreement, and she was compensated. >> interested. >> crazy story. >> crazy. >> makes you think twice. >> goes to the heart of why we like services like uber. you see your driver, the car, you trust it. >> and this guy knew her name, so he has no doubt she called the right person and someone from uber showed up. but the fact that it's not on her phone is a problem. >> serious. all right. thank you, susan.

4:32 pm
ticket drivers, pedestrians and bikers who break the law with fines up to $500 and points on their licenses. >> gets dark so early now, and also when i come in the morning, it's still dark. i worry sometimes that people can't see me. >> there's just -- because a lot of neighbors commute and they try to cross that road to get to the metro, and it's dangerous. >> this morning's hit and run, we know police are looking for a headed that way to georgia avenue. it may have extensive front end damage. as for the fall street smart campaign, that runs through november 27th, in silver spring, molette green, news 4. >> a report obtained by news 4 earlier this week found a critical lack of male teaches across the state of maryland. another new study says suspensions and discipline for
4:33 pm
teachers than with teachers of color. troy johnson is here with today's talk around time. these findings come from researchers at the american university as well as the university of california davis. what else do they find and how are your listeners reacting to this data? >> the listeners reaction, they're glad to hear this reaction because a lot of parents are concerned about how are we going to get the best scenarios out of our -- the best outcomes for our students and our kids in so it's critical to hear this kind of information, and it's things that a lot of people thought already. they were thinking that, you know, a lot of these kids are having problems in class unexplainable situations, why are they becoming suspended more often than other of their peers? that's what this study seems to be getting to. there may be some implicit bias that folks are not aware of. >> want to take a look at a couple stats from the study.
4:34 pm
enrollment, but 43% of those who are suspended during the 2011-2012 school year. another stat shows exposure to black teachers can reduce the likelihood of discipline and boost reading achievements among black students. and laws in d.c. in 22 states now require or encourage limits on school suspensions or expulsions. >> it's really interesting to hear those kinds of things. add a black male teacher to the situation, the outcomes are better for black students. and there's a big focus on black male students as well. many folks that i talked to are saying that, look, these kids definitely need the kind of support and nourishment to succeed in school. i spoke to several teachers. one in maryland said the study captures the dilemma especially
4:35 pm
>> moving into higher education, things like that, is more of a struggle for them. so we do try to keep them in the classrooms and not have them suspended and out on the streets. >> interesting. many of your listeners also think these kinds of changes can help cut the school to prison pipeline which so many are worried about. >> absolutely. that's something that could be eye opening and surprising to some folks. again, the research finds that white teachers. it's not something that is overtly out there, but it's something that is in people's subconscious, and what is also interesting in the study they say when white teachers are teaching white students, they don't have the same kind of outcome, the same improvement in outcomes. some of these teachers i spoke to were saying because we have been in those situations as students ourselves. we understand when the bias has been in place and now we know how to help students that are
4:36 pm
>> it would appear that the fix is simple, to have more teacher diversity, but you're listeners don't think it's that simple. >> it doesn't seem that simple because just simply hiring black teachers, first of all, school districts don't seem to be doing that. the teachers kind of underscore that situation as well. there are opportunities for black teachers but retention is tough for teachers because they're often put in challenged school situations which is much hr not getting the leeway that they need to really affect students in the most positive way. they don't have -- they have a lot of confined restranlts in some situations. so there's a lot of burnout, and teachers, you know, it's a hard road to face, so that's why keeping teachers sometimes is very difficult. there has to be more than just hiring black teachers to find the real solution. >> all right, troy, thank you.
4:37 pm
>> and today, we're about 20 degrees cooler than yesterday, but it was a nice autumn day out there. plenty of sunshine and currently, we're coming in in the low to mid 60s. 64 degrees here in washington. some of the suburbs north of town, you'll see temperatures there are a little cooler. we're at 62 in rockville and 61 in gaithersburg. heading out tonight, you definitely want the warm jacket for the high school football games. my holoschool is playing rockersville. go knights. as the games get under way around 7:00 p.m., it's really not that bad. 57 degrees. but temperatures will fall during the game, so you'll maybe want to bring a blanket as well. 8:00 p.m., in the mid 50s, and by the time the ga games are wrapping up, in the low 50s. we'll break your forecast down at 5:00. >> the most shocking story of the day, a woman missing for
4:38 pm
have made another disturbing discovery. >> a little incentive on tuesday. who's giving away election day who's giving away election day freebies to those w northern virginia, on the issues, barbara comstock and donald trump are the same. comstock and trump promote deportation and reject any comprehensive immigration reform. both oppose background checks that keep guns from suspected terrorists. and comstock-trump were prepared to shut down the government just for politics. time for luann bennett comprehensive immigration reform now. common sense gun safety laws. bennett tells congress: do your job. i'm luann bennett

we wanted to take a closer look at the biggest battleground states to see which party is truly winning the battle to bank votes now. these are new numbers just out. look at this. north carolina, as of this morning, more than 2.5 million people cast their votes in that state. 43% democrat, 32% republican. but keep in mind, the democrats lead, it's narrower than it was at this point in 2012. let's go over to florida now. where more than 4.5 mill latino vote is up, black vote is down. and the candidates' numbers dead even. 40% each. again, this caveat, democrats were up there just four years ago. all right, looking over at arizona, republicans have the edge there, where they are leading democrats 40% to 34%. but democrats are feeling bullish there because of a very strong latino turnout. again, look at ohio, democrats have the edge in early voting. they're leading republicans by eight points.
