Isn't 老师六点晚上回家 also acceptable?

Why can't the time component come first? 晚上六点老师下班

Focus is Teacher, not coming home.

Shouldn't "get's off work" and "finishes school" be exchangeable if the aubject is a teacher?

I believe if the Chinese sentence specifically says 'school', then you should specifically use that word, and not substitute the more generic 'work'. However, I'd also want to know if you can fàng bān, 放班, finish work, instead of only xià bān, 下班, get off work. And can you xià xuē, 下学, get off school?

Why is 老师下午六点下班 accepted? 6 in the evening = 6 pm
