882. Chennai schools

The Chennai shools offer top education but they run their schools allowing system of shaming and attract teachers who exploit the unsecure teenagers and some of the teenagers take sexual advantages of the teenage students.

As result many of the students felt that it was their fault that the teachers touched them in an inappropriate way and in some cases even went further.

Now former students call for a reform.

Until this has happened it is safe to say that it cannot be fun to be there as a teenager.

An article in newspaper tells the story about two persons who have been working in the private teenage detention business where the facilities are called treatment centers, who became involved in lawsuits and criminal investigation. While the police stopped the investigation due to the age of the victims, the incident shows a need for better supervision of private detention facilities. Chaffin Pullan and Michele “Mickey” Manning have been working in many programs. Some of them belonging to the infamous WWASP organization and in one case at a facility where a girl died as result of suicide.

Now they started Reflections Academy Inc. and it is at this facility the police investigated claims of sexual abuse and grooming.

It cannot be fun to be there as a teenager and age out so you become a legal target for grooming and abuse.

411. Cedar Ridge Academy

Cedar Ridge Academy – now known as Makana Leadership Academy – is located outside the town of Roosevelt in Utah. It was founded in 1996. Over the years many teenagers have been transported there against their will by professional transporters. In the public the boarding school is mostly known for the actions of a male nurse who became to eager with grooming behavior. There are only so many times you need to conduct “hernia checks”.
