743. The Sonia Shankman Orthogenic School

The Sonia Shankman Orthogenic School was founded in 1915. In the years between 1944 and 1973 the school was managed by Bruno Bettelheim. Former students from that time speak of a life in fear of him. While the present management do it different, the system they use where students have to earn the right to speak to their own family frequently increases the risk of abuse.

It could not have been fun to be there while Bruno Bettelheim was in charge.

About Rotsne

Danish immigrant, but very integrated. After having worked for another research center, I have recently started working for International Culture Exchange where I serve the youth and their families wanting to become an exchange student.
