822. Børnehjemmet Strandberg

The childrens home Strandberg was located in Virum. It was a so-called Christian children’s home and it seems that the manager sometime weighed religion over mental diagnoses. The former manager died in 2014.

It could not have been fun to be placed there as a child in need of special professional care.

771. Unnamed boarding school in Kadunda, Nigeria

The authorities raided an unlicensed boarding school in Kadunda where the students were kept in chains and exposed to abuse, including sexual abuse. The actions of the employees were defended as acts committed in accordance with their religious belief. Despite that charges have been raised against both employees and the owners.

Such unlicensed school exist all over Africa but it is rare that the authorities intervene because it is considered a good thing that youth attend some kind of schooling instead of hanging out in the streets.

However, it cannot be fun to be at such a boarding school as a student.

734. St. Mary’s Mission Boarding School

St. Mary is a small community located in the state of Alaska. For many years the Catolic church ran a boarding school there. Today it is known that the church did not stop the actions of Father James Poole. He was active in the 1960’s and 1970’s putting numerous girls through ordeals which no girl should be subjected to.

It is safe to say that it could not have been fun to be there as a teenager having a body which he took interest in.

649. Canaan’s Land Boys Ranch

Canaan’s Land Boys Ranch is a small so-called boarding school where they use the ACE curriculum. It operated for some time without proper paperwork, but in Montana there are not a lot of consequences by doing this. The manager – JR Thompson – known from the bizarre events at Blue Creek Academy started the so-called school without proper paperwork.

Given the fact that such schools require almost no oversight and given his past behavior, it is safe to state that it cannot be fun to be there as a teenager, not to mention that the curriculum does not count at most universities and colleges, meaning that it is waste of time academically to attend school there.

611. Darul Quran Ittifaqiyah

A terrible tragedy struck the Darul Quran Ittifaqiyah so-called boarding school in Kuala Lumpur when fire broke out. It is not known why there only was one exit but at other so-called school of similar kind students are forced to attend. In some case some of the students were even forced to wear shackles in order to prevent them from running.

The school was not regulated by the officials and that is a huge security risk. Because it allows the management to design the schools as prisons which are deadly when we talk fires.

The teenagers who died were trapped with no chance of escaping. The windows had bars and of course once the fire blocked the single exit possibility, they could only wait and die.

A terrible loss for their families and the local community in general all because some parents prefer their child to memorize some religious words instead of getting a real education which could have enabled them for a future.

The government should step in and close schools down until they are reconstructed to be more safe in order to prevent future tragedies like this one.

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

456. Daarur Rasul Islamic boarding school

Christian Parents living at West Papua are living every day fearing that their children will be taken to boarding schools to become heathens.

If the children don’t break, they disappear and will most properly die at an unknown location so their parent cannot even visit their graves.

This is the same Indonesia who try to bring tourists into their country. Maybe that is the spot where they need to be hurt not visiting them before the central government stop this abuse.

It is safe to say that it cannot be fun to be there as a teenager.
