517. La Europa Academy
La Europa Academy is a so-called residential treatment facility located in Murray, Utah
There seems to be some concern about teenagers who face challenges regarding their gender identity.
A review on Yelp.com states:
Worst 9 months of my life. Do not send your child here if they struggle with gender identity issues. They will not get respected. And when you tour, they lie about a lot of stuff.
They also use a level system, which has been subject of much criticism among human rights groups.
It cannot be fun to be there as a teenager.
A former employee – Jason Scott Calder who later was charged with rape, forcible sodomy and forcible sexual abuse had been working at the facility. October 2017 there was no information that he had taken advantage of teenagers at La Europa Academy but investigation is ongoing.
