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.

Robin Lyons School News BlogBLOG POST #177: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific crime involving a 15-year-old high school student and her 50-year-old teacher.

It was her first year in public school. She’d been home-schooled through eighth grade.

He’d been with the high school for six years, teaching health sciences.

She’d been a student in his forensics class when another student said they’d witnessed the student and teacher kiss in his classroom. The accusation was unsubstantiated but the rumors were rampant and triggered the following events.

Crossing The Line

The morning the teacher disappeared with his student he’d left a note for his wife. He said he needed to get away and ‘clear his head.’ He took with him  $4,500 and two prescription refills of an erectile dysfunction medication.

BLOG POST #172: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific crime involving a middle school science teacher.

Being a school teacher involves so much more than teaching. Parents trust teachers to not only educate their children but also keep them safe. When a teacher violates that trust—whether it’s at school or not—too often, it’s criminal.

The Crime

This case involves a woman whose identity is protected because the abuse she suffered began when she was 10-years-old. And because she was a minor for most of the time she was abused, much of the case detail is also protected.

Volunteering in 5th-Grade

Sadly, there was a school shooting this week at a middle school in Indiana. The motive is unknown. Someone learned of the threat and called in to report it. The authorities acted fast, the school went into lock-down, and the only casualty was the shooter who took his own life. My heart hurts for all involved including the family of the deceased. Brave accolades go to the person who saw something and said something.

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.
