What sucks about High School and Makes Home School Great

One of the things that really sucked when I got to high school is the fact they took RECESS off of us! Is this a wise decision? Well I hated it. Recess was a time to let loose, it was a time to run and play. Recess was my favorite part of school.

Elementary School

You know how when you’re in elementary school and they want you to solved equations like E=mc2. They also want you to spell things like australopithecus, Canis lupus familiaris, and Equus grevyi? YEAH THATS RIGHT YOU NEED RECESS AFTER THAT!

High School

OK so when you get to high school they say, “NO MORE RECESS?” Give me a break man! I went through hormone changes, frustration level went up, got irritable leg syndrome from having to sit at my desk for hours. To sum it up it was a total nightmare without recess!

Home School

Homeschool rocks. We can have two 15 minute recesses. The ability to be able to go outside and let loose is part of a great learning experience. Kids are safer and learn more!

NOTE: This article has been endorsed by high school students everywhere! Give us some recess people, we need it!

Youngstown East High School Principal Crushes Student

A Youngstown East High School principal crushes a student apparently with the help of another student. Tryvan Leech, Sr. is seen below on top of a East High Student in an altercation.

What Led to Principal Tryvan Leech Sr. Crushing This Student?

On Thursday October 29th Mayra Espada the mother of the teen who was crushed came to my house. She was in tears and feared for her son’s safety. She reported that her son was in an altercation at school with another teen who was taunting her son with foul language. Apparently Mayra’s son was expressing a desire to quit the football team and the other teen did not like it. Mayra’s son reported that he was hurling insults at him and demeaning terms when the altercation took place.

What Are Your Thoughts?

As I look at these pictures I cannot but help think about what was going though this principal’s mind when he decided to jump on this teen with his heavy body. Of course this man is more powerful than the teen but does this give him an excuse for excessive force and dominance? It seems this school gets away with way too much and I hope with the new school board in place they will not tolerate the abuse of students.

This is no Way to Reach the Hearts

Brute physical force is no way to reach the hearts and minds of children. This is an old school tactic for out of date an uneducated people. The solution is NEVER VIOLENCE FOR VIOLENCE!  What kind of cave men are in charge of our children’s safety and well being at school? The pictures above disgust me on many levels. I think every parent needs to ask themselves, “What if that was your child?”.

For a principal that makes $87,560 a year I think this situation should of been handled totally different.

The Family is Looking For Help

Mayra is now afraid to send her child to school and with good reason. The family is looking for someone to represent them in this battle. Please contact Youngstown Angels if you can help this family restore their peace of mind. Youngstown Schools have gotten away with way too much and will continue this kind of behavior until they are stopped legally!

Tell Tryvan Leech sr What you think by contacting him below.

Principal:  Tryvan Leech, Sr.
Phone:  330-740-4005
Fax:  330-742-6464
474 Bennington Ave.

Youngstown, Ohio 44505

Update: More information

It is also ironic that the principal did not file a report until a week after this incident occurred. I just got off the phone with the mother and Father of the student. They reported that while the Principal was holding him down the other students were kicking him in the back and face.

A Monster Behind The Wheel Of A School Bus in Youngstown

Is there a Monster behind the wheel of a school bus in Youngstown Ohio? Well you decide. I have been on a long road this year trying to keep my sons occupied. If you give them idle time, their mind reflects upon their sister Faith and her horrible death. I always try to direct their minds to the good times that they had with Faith because everyday one spent with Faith was happy. One thing that they cannot get through their heads is the fact that authorities in Youngstown really do not care. However I let my sons know that this is not normal or decent. It is a real challenge trying to accomplish this. I am sure in their minds they are like me and look upon them with disgust and amazement.

My concern for the safety and well being of the children of Youngstown grows each and every day. I knew this woman was careless and negligent but to what extent I did not know until recently. It really amazes me that the Youngstown School District are really not putting it together.

Unavoidable Accident?

So I have been saying all along that the investigators are wrong, wrong and more wrong in Youngstown Ohio. However most of the Youngstown People have been saying that as well. Our independent investigation revealed many things, some we knew of and some we didn’t. However is there any use of sharing it with a crackpot investigation team ?

Below is a graphic of a facebook post of the driver who killed Faith McCullough. Keep in mind this is the first day of school, the attitude is disgusting to say the least. This post was made after she killed Faith McCullough.

I can just imagine some poor kid being a couple seconds late running towards the bus and her gassing on it and laughing. For those of you who think this attitude is new see the rest of the posts on this website. In this comment, is she saying she is not stopping that bus for any kid especially a high school kid? I think we know the answer to that question.

Also remember that a school bus is long, very long. If she gasses on it and the child reaches the tail end of the school bus trips and falls, what then?

There are countless things that you can get out of this comment. It would make any normal persons stomach turn. The only ones laughing are her, the prosecution team, Youngstown School Board and dont forget the Mayor!

Stomach Curdling Excerpts

  • “…What they fail to realize…”
  • “…I’m not on it…”
  • “… We can try again tomorrow…”

A Shout Out To Other School Bus Drivers

There are some very good bus drivers in Youngstown. Unlike the crackpot prosecution team, I can distinguish a careless driver from a careful one. I know having to drive beside this negligent driver has been hard on them as well and I just wanted to mention it. That being said I think it is important that we as a community need to be wise in our reactions to school bus drivers yet at the same time know that we have to protect our children. Protecting our children is more important than any job.

CPO Civil Protection Order – Really?

Well its not enough that she kills my daughter but when I talk about the incident and try to turn it into a cause for Child Safety then she files a CPO? This sparked my interest because Karen Leaf, Faiths mother wanted a protection order against her for Harley and David McCullough, Faiths brothers. I told Karen that I did not think that she could file something like that back in November 2014 because in order to file a PFA in Pa you have to be lovers, ex-lovers or relatives. I did do some research about CPO’s which is an acronym for “Civil Protection Order” in Ohio and the rules are somewhat similar.

I can only guess that the prosecution is behind this to try to turn the victim’s father into a criminal in order to shut me up about justice not being served for Faith McCullough.

However I did do some research and I am at a loss as to how this CPO could even be granted even on a temporary basis. I am under the impression that a “Victim” has a right to file a CPO in Ohio. Well since the real victim Faith McCullough is dead she can’t but she would if she was alive!

What is the procedure for obtaining a domestic violence civil protection order (CPO)?

A victim, or a parent or adult family or household member of a victim, must file a petition for a domestic violence CPO.

The person filing the petition is named as the petitioner, and the alleged abuser is named in the petition as the respondent.

If an emergency (ex parte) CPO is granted on the day the petitioner requests the emergency protection order, the court must then schedule a “full hearing” within seven to ten court days after the court grants the emergency protection order.  (If there is no emergency protection order, the court still usually schedules the full hearing within the same seven- to ten-day period after filing the petition, but the court may schedule the full hearing for a later date.)

At the full hearing, both the petitioner (victim) and the respondent (alleged abuser) may present their evidence proving or disproving the alleged abuse, including their own testimony, the testimony of other witnesses, and any relevant documents.  The petition and any emergency protection order must be served on the respondent by the sheriff or a sheriff’s deputy.

What kind of judge would grant this order? I am definitely not lovers or ex-lovers with this person, I have never met her in my life and she is no family relation to me. I have never been to her house or met any of her family and never wished her any harm or threatened her at all. I am very confused by all of this. If this is really the case then can every parent that views her as a threat to their childrens safety file a CPO against her? If this is the case then I think every parent should start filing right away for their childrens safety and well being here free at Law help Interactive.

Are you Satisfied With Child Safety in Youngstown Schools?


Since I have been blogging about child safety in Youngstown City School’s and the carelessness of the school board officials, many have reached out to me. I was also curious about a place where parents can get together online to express their concerns about child safety and their experiences. Not surprising to me is there is no where one parent can read a report that another parent made. There is no where a parent can go to get unbiased reports about the safety and well being of their children. Most parents are under the illusion that the school board cares about their child’s safety at all costs. This could not be further from the truth in Youngstown.

The Problem with Undocumented Reports

Several parents have messaged me, emailed me about horrible things that have happened to their children. I was appalled and horrified. If I had these reports before I agreed to let Faith McCullough attend the Youngstown School’s there would be no way in hell I would let her attend something so dangerous. What is even more impressive is the fact that there is no way to prove that you as a parent called and reported the problem. It seems school officials and the school board do not want you to know that information. Here are some of the things that parents have reported to me about their children after this horrible experience.

  • 7 Year old gets dropped off at wrong bus stop.
  • School bus driver taking off while child is still trying to get to his seat causing him to go to the hospital for neck injuries.
  • Bus driver hits child, parent reports it to principal no action taken.

These are just three of several important pieces of information that I wish I had before I let my children attend this school.

The Solution

The Faith McCullough Foundation website is a place where parents can report and share what is going on in their school district. The other great thing about this is that the school district themselves can respond to these reports. All reports are emailed to the person that made the report with a special link in it where they can check the status of the report 24/7. The other great thing about this is that it is a third party which is documenting the complaint that a parent makes about their childrens safety. These reports may be used in a court of law as well to hold negligent people responsible for negligent actions.
