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

Robin Lyons' Blog Post #123Charter schools are funded with tax-payer money but managed privately.

They have more flexibility with curriculum, budget, and staffing. Charter Schools are NOT exempt from standard accounting practices.

BLOG POST #115: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific criminal case about an Executive Director of a Charter School.

Stealing From The Most Vulnerable

It was the Executive Director’s frequent deposits to purchase a total of $760,000 in life insurance annuities from a financial security company that eventually raised red flags at the company, and they reported the suspicious activity to the FBI, prompting an investigation.

First, thank you for taking time from your busy life to read my post. I believe with knowledge of school violence and awareness we can make a difference.

BLOG POST #27: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific criminal case involving an Associate School Superintendent.

This crime occurred at School District, a world class school district, where the core values include Safe and Orderly Schools. Although embezzlement isn’t a direct safety threat to school children, indirectly everyone pays the price when someone embezzles.

He was the Associate School Superintendent and acting CFO when he directed a subordinate to issue a $236,000 check to his Leadership Academy. He provided the district with a fraudulent invoice to validate the expenditure. Later, he transferred the money to his personal account from which he financed travel and purchased a Jaguar.

Research Blog

Welcome to Robin’s Research Blog

Information for parents, grandparents, and those who care about children.

Robin uses the true crime cases shared here on the blog as inspiration for characters and plots in her School Marshal Mystery/Thriller series. 

The cases are disturbing. Schools try to provide a safe learning environment, but they’re underfunded, understaffed, and need more training. **Explicit Content Ahead**

Should you become aware of a person who you believe may be a danger to someone at a school, NEVER attempt to handle the situation yourself. See or hear something – say something by REPORTING your suspicions to school administration or law enforcement.

If you’ve experienced school violence, have suicidal thoughts or know someone who needs help please call:
