456. Daarur Rasul Islamic boarding school

Christian Parents living at West Papua are living every day fearing that their children will be taken to boarding schools to become heathens.

If the children don’t break, they disappear and will most properly die at an unknown location so their parent cannot even visit their graves.

This is the same Indonesia who try to bring tourists into their country. Maybe that is the spot where they need to be hurt not visiting them before the central government stop this abuse.

It is safe to say that it cannot be fun to be there as a teenager.

The Christian and Missionary Alliance’s Mamou Academy located in Guinea operated until 1971. After the school was closed and the children became adults they started to speak out against the abuse they experienced at the school. It was documented in various newspapers. A documentary was also made.

It is safe to state that it could not have been fun to be there as a child.

The Tekakwitha Orphanage in Sisseton, South Dakota housed a number of children some decades ago. Among the employees were a pastor who according several of the children who were forced to live at the Orphanage raped the children. He was never convicted. That is why we don’t mention his name in this blog. However you can find his sorry name in the sources to this article.

It is safe to conclude that it could not have been fun to be there as a child.

Articles show that the management has failed to do background checks of employees and allows minors without relevant training to work with the children properly to save money.

Ettal monastery school in Bravia, Germany made the headlines when the police raided it based on suspicion of abuse. According to various sources hundreds of boys had been beaten, many of them severely, by staff at the school decades ago.

It is not clear how many who will end up being charged and given their day in court but it is safe to say at this point that it couldn’t have been fun to be there as a teenager.

451. Magnolia Hills Christian School

Around 2008 bad press pressured the so-called residential treatment facilities which worked together with the WWASP organization. Enrollment lowered at Carolina Springs Academy and after a fire the authorities made various demands, so the owners rebranded Carolina Springs Academy as Magnolia Hills Christian School. Now it was marketed as a Christian School.

However enrollment continued to be reduced and in the end the campus was closed down.

There were problems with animals on the property not being taken care off.

It could not have been fun to be there as a teenager.

450. Teen C.A.R.E. Camp

This rehab started in California but soon moved south of the borders where regulation and oversight was none-existing. Former clients speak of mechanical restraints, use of tear-gas against clients and a lot other things which indicated poorly trained employees with none or little knowledge about the level of care such a complicated decease like addition requires.

In the long run the operation became too much for even the authorities in Mexico and they moved the operations to an unknown location inside the United States where they shut down a short time after year 2000.

449. Eagleton School

The police has made arrests in connection with an investigation into child abuse related to the Eagleton School in Great Barrington, Massachusetts.

While none have been convicted and the shool is rather old and is considered to have a good reputation locally, reviews made by former employees speak of high turnover of employees and a management with little control over the daily life.

Taking into consideration that the approach taken in connection with children suffering from autism and Asperger syndrome needs to be very structured a messy approach is bound to cause trouble and then a child can be hurt in the process.

It doesn’t sound like a fun place to be teenager when the employees are not following common known guidelines in connection with the challenges the teenagers face based on their illness.

448. Gøgereden

The group home Gøgereden (Cuckoo’s Nest) located in the northern part of Jutland had a cottage on the remote island Læsø they used to isolate girls placed in their care by the social services in Denmark.

One of counselors had sex with one of the girls. Normally the courts wouldn’t take the word for it but the girl had kept a secret recording of a confession made by the counselor. She also hit sperm from the man after the intercourse.

The counselor was sentenced to 60 days in prison. After a retrial the verdict was confirmed but the prison sentence was suspended. It was quiet a remarkble verdict as the system in Denmark looks down on children placed in the system.

It could not have been fun to be at the group home as a teenager.

447. Tettenhall College

When you were a student at the Tettenhall College in the 1970’s you better had to look after yourself. Not so recently the former headmaster was under investigation of sexually abusing pupils. A lot of his vicims had come forward now where they were adults and no longer had to fear the headmaster.

An earlier investigation was halted when the police believed that the former headmaster was too sick to stand trial but it seems that he fooled them. Video showed an active man to the very end. He fooled the police and his victims never got justice for his terrible actions against them.
