7. Reclamation Ranch in Alabama – United States
This boarding school created some attention when it was raided in 2008. Shackles were used on teenagers who wanted to run away. Sounds like a really fun place. Did I mention that they had their own church like curriculum which didn’t count a lot of places.
The manager of the school managed to plea the charges down and got off with a fine. The good outcome was however that the authorities very much managed to close the school.
