574. Waialeʻe Industrial School

Today Waialeʻe Industrial School in Hawaii is only a tomb but past generations remember this place with fear. Not everyone was placed there fairly. There was a time where the United States ran the former Kingdom of Hawaii as a kind of colony controlled by private businessmen who didn’t accept democracy or even the kingdom itself. It closed in the 1950’s.

It could not have been a fun place to be as a teenager.

Cross Creek Center was the male version of the Cross Creek Programs. It closed around 2009.

Isolation cells were used and former students often spoke a number of manuel restraints taking place.

The WWASP system consisted of 6 levels. Often it took months before students were able to talk to family and friends.
