Robin Lyons Blog PostBLOG POST #179: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific crime involving a computer tech in a rural school district.

The rural school district, unknowingly, hired this sexual predator in 2005. During his employment as the person who maintained the district computers, he obtained approximately 10 pornography images of school district students, ages 15 and 16 years old he’d discovered on the students’ district-issued laptops.

Abusive Teacher’s Last Pass

Robin Lyons Blog PostHave you heard the term ‘Pass the Trash?’ I know of the practice, I didn’t know there was a name for it. In a nutshell, you have an employee whose work performance is substandard for whatever reason, they’re given the choice to resign or be fired. If they resign, their substandard job performance is withheld when the next employer checks references – due to ‘confidentiality’ requirements.

I remember we were told when a potential employer called for references we could respond with a “no” to the question, “Would you hire X again?” but could say nothing else as to why not.

Predator in the Classroom

The case research I’m sharing in this post is disturbing. It boggles my mind why an adult would want to harm a child in any way.

Teachers, in general, have long been considered someone a child can trust based merely on their job title. Sadly, this is no longer the case and possibly was a false belief all along.

Parents are the best judge of character for whom to trust to be alone with their child. I believe when parents are actively involved in schools, the odds increase that their child won’t be abused by a school employee.

Elementary School Drug Ring

When students are involved in crimes, information is often protected. Most often the court documents are sealed.

Because the students, in this case, were so young, the case documents are protected. And because they were so young, I felt it was worth sharing.

I’m sure most people can’t fathom elementary students would be involved with drugs. Sadly, it happens in all socioeconomic groups.

What teenager doesn’t want money? I know, that’s a silly question. But what will they do to get money? Most would be willing to do honest work. A few would be willing to do almost anything.

The school employee in this researched case gave willing teens what they wanted. Money.
