The Bully And The Hero

***READER DISCRETION IS ADVISED***

Posts about real school tragedy, crime and/or events can be upsetting.

Robin Lyons' Blog Post #113Hello. Thank you for continuing to read my research. I believe it’s important for people to understand that danger lurks at most schools.

You might be surprised by this post as I’m spotlighting the hero rather than the villain.

BLOG POST #105: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific criminal case involving a high school bully, a visually impaired classmate, and a hero.

The Law Is The Law, Right?

Or is the law subjective? Where I live, there’s a case in the mainstream news about a person who threw a cream pie into the face of a mayor. Was it assault? The jury couldn’t reach a verdict. What if it had been acid thrown in the face instead of pie?

Robin Lyons' Blog Post #109

When a school employee or other public service employee is arrested for illegal activities most people are disappointed and shocked. I know I continue to be saddened by the cases I research. If only there were a way to vet applicants so as to hire the very best.

Thank you for taking time from your busy life to read and learn about school news that often doesn’t make ‘the news.’

BLOG POST #104: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific criminal case involving a high school special education teacher.

I’ve never known a heroin addict. After researching this case, I wondered…Was his drug use not noticeable?

And Then There Was One

A student found a syringe on the restroom floor. He gave the syringe to a teacher’s aide. The school notified local authorities and a criminal investigation ensued.

A Sexual Predator At The High School

Posts about real school tragedy, crime and/or events can be upsetting.

Robin Lyons' Blog Post #108Greetings and thank you for reading my blog post. You care about children, or you wouldn’t continue to read my research. I believe understanding more about the dangers lurking online and offline helps us make the world a safer place for kids.

There are so many websites on the internet where teenagers can connect with other teens. Unfortunately, pedophiles and sexual predators are also on those sites. If you haven’t talked openly with your children about cyber predators, perhaps it’s time you did.

BLOG POST #103: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific criminal case involving a high school teacher and a teenage girl (not one of his students).

How Much Freedom Should Teenagers Have?

If you have children, I’m sure you’ve had moments when you wanted to snoop on your child’s electronic device to see what websites they visit. Keeping an eye on who they communicate with on social media is a challenge. You might question if they deserve some freedom, or if they know better than to get involved in anything inappropriate. I say, kick those thoughts to the curb and snoop.

Fleecing of America

Posts about real school tragedy, crime and/or events can be upsetting.

Robin Lyons' Blog Post #108Hello! You may or may not know I worked as a payroll accountant for a school district before I retired. I’m telling you this because one of the two people in this blog post was an accountant, whose business provided budgeting and bookkeeping services for the school district.

I semi-seriously used to say to a co-worker, the way the district spent the public’s money was a fleecing of America.

At my level, I saw areas where thievery was possible. Apparently, the two women in this post found weak places as well. And they took advantage of those weaknesses.

Thanks for taking the time to read my research and for becoming more aware of possible wrongdoing in schools.

BLOG POST #100: This week, I’m sharing research on two specific criminal cases involving an accountant and a school teacher.

It didn’t seem like a conflict of interest.

Mother was a contract accountant. Typically, contract accountants are responsible for everything from requests for proposals to payment. Not typical is an accountant who processes her check requests.

Don’t Accept Candy From A Bully

Posts about real school tragedy, crime and/or events can be upsetting.

Robin Lyons' Blog Post #107When researching cases, I often reflect on situations my adult children experienced when they were in school and what my grandchildren see nowadays. Sadly, they’ve all crossed paths with a bully.

When it comes to bullying, there are too many cases. Parents are in denial. Schools are overworked and underfunded. Law enforcement has bigger fish to fry.

I’m certain if I asked each of you reading this post to share a bully incident; you’d ALL have a story to tell.

Thank you for reading and for caring about children.

BLOG POST #99: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific criminal case involving two middle school bullies.

Students bullying students begins as early as kindergarten

Kids who bully, start school as bullies, they gain intensity and momentum as they progress through the grades.
