757. Mount Pleasant Academy
2019 brought the news that Mount Pleasant Academy will close.
Before Sequel acquired its four Utah treatment centers in 2016, state investigators threatened to revoke Mount Pleasant Academy’s license after they found reports of child abuse and neglect.
Sequel tried to run the facility but low enrollment meant that it was not a good business and because running such a place is never about the welfare of children but rather about profit for the owners, Sequel will now close the facility.
It seems that a state like Oregon has taxpayers who are willing to waste their money. Like it was the case with Red Rock Canyon School, Oregon has paid for poor service for its foster children.
Based on what took place before 2016, it is safe to say that it was not a good place to be as a teenager.
