628. Yuzhang Academy
The Yuzhang Academy located in the Qingshanhu area was founded in 2013. According to its former website it was able to deal with “eliminating children’s bad problems,” including internet addiction, puppy love, aversion to studying, and mental deficiency.
According to articles and interviews with former so-called students which were held at the facility against their will, the facility made use of solitary confinement, corporal punishment and forced labor.
The website of the school is now gone. Whether they closed or just got into hiding until the heat is gone, is not known at the present time. However it remains to conclude that it could not have been fun to be there as a teenager.
