Dock Mennonite Academy is a private school located in Pennsylvania. Earliest records of the schools date back to 1952 and it opened in 1953. It is affiliated with the Mennonite movement. Some years back they hired a teacher who had worked at the infamous CEDU chain of school mentioned on this block. They closed in 2005 after the lawsuits piled up.
At Dock Mennonite Academy the teacher was allowed to include some elements of the curriculum at CEDU. Especially a part called “smushing” where students and teacher lie close together so they can feel each others bodies.
Some years later the teacher – now a assistant principal made the choice to resign and later charges of misconduct was brought up.
Students who were forced through this process which took place after the marathon sessions involving attack therapy felt violated at CEDU. Some felt that the feeling of their bodies focused on private parts. Now students at the Dock Mennonite Academy who were subjected to the smushing part also felt violated.
Some might wonder why the management allowed these methods to be allowed and are the use limited to this one person? Did they not know about the lawsuits against CEDU? They were very public. As result the Dock Mennonite Academy became a not so fun a place to be as a teenager regardless of the outcome of the trial.
