19. Lundby Efterskole – Denmark
Lundby Efterskole is properly the Danish version of the American Yes Academy. (See my last post)
The students was forced to navigate a dragon boat ill suited for open waters on a cold day in February where the temperatures were below the freezing point. Only minutes in the waters will render you unconscious and you are very likely to die.
But the environment of the school didn’t allow the students to say no. Otherwise they could risk being sent home. So of course they had to enter the boat which for a number of them resulted in injuries preventing them living the life they had expected.
Only the tough ex. army sergent who functioned as a teacher died but is was pure luck that the number of casulties remained that low.
If you are a parent sending your child to one of these boarding schools then think twice. It it not worth it. I know that I didn’t come out as a better person. I only came out as a bitter person. But I survived without damages and maybe I should be thankful about it when I think of all the things the students from Lundby was put through.
