I'm not sure why this information was removed, it's a news story. Also, the edit where the picture of the arrested man was associated with the wrong person was made by the editor that asked why it happened, I presume it was an accident. BananaFiend (talk) 14:38, 10 April 2008 (UTC)
Swisehilliard (talk) 15:15, 10 April 2008 (UTC) The "incident" happened 2 years ago and it doesn't accurately reflect on the school. The man received reprimand from the courts. It's old news. Whoever posted the article and the link of the head mistress to the wrong picture did it maliciously, I think. Swisehilliard (talk) Also, BananaFiend mentioned that he or she thinks I posted the photograph of Arturo. I did not. This is the first time I have ever edited (or, more accurately, tried to edit) Wikipedia. Arturo was a teacher for several schools in the Houston area. He coached at another prestigious school in Houston, during the time he taught Math, and he came here from another area school where he had worked several years. He had never had any other complaint against him - the school does a thorough background check. So I think it is a little unfair to brand the school with that incident - that happened over 2 years ago. —Preceding comment was added at 16:16, 10 April 2008 (UTC)
- Hi there! I did't believe you added the photo, merely that (probably by accident) you associated the link with the wrong person. Having reviewed that I realise it was my mistake, and I apologise. Again though, I did not associate any malice with the action as your edits did not suggest you were a vandal.
- Anyway on to the point at hand. I am unsure as to the best way forward. Perhaps this is more trivia than anything else. I'm opening a discussion in the wikipedia village pump if you want to comment. BananaFiend (talk) 20:59, 10 April 2008 (UTC)
- OK, back again - only one other person commented at the linked page, but they agreed that this was not newsworthy. I'm convinced at this stage. It's not that it would reflect badly on the school (it would stay in anyway) but that it really has nothing to do with the school - the procedures were followed by the school and a fairly minor inicident (though not for the people involved) occurred. I won't be adding it in again, good luck with your future edits!
- p.s someone just changed kindergarten to discovery, is that correct? BananaFiend (talk) 07:13, 11 April 2008 (UTC)
Swisehilliard (talk) Yes, ROBS actually has a class for 2-year-olds called Discovery. I am the school librarian and I think I will try to add some content to the page to give more detail about the school. I don't know who added the Discovery entry. Thanks for agreeing that the "incident" was old news. It was a terrible event for the school, very deeply felt by the administration. New procedures were put in place to try to prevent it ever happening again. I know we would all like to put it behind us. —Preceding comment was added at 14:29, 11 April 2008 (UTC)
- No problem... it really wasn't anything to do with the school per-se, it could have happened anywhere. The school didn't invite it through lax procedures nor was it endemic. I can imagine how upsetting it was for everyone, not just those directly involved. BananaFiend (talk) 08:58, 14 April 2008 (UTC)
