Do they still send behaviorally-challenged kids to reform schools?
Here they get sent to shop class.
Funny you should ask this. Have a friend w 2 kids. Girl is about to graduate. Great kid. Her brother has been kicked out of three schools for behavior issues and currently is going to reform school in Duluth. State ordered.
Our friend has a kid that belongs in such a school but the state refuses to believe a six year old needs to be in such a place. The parents are fearful it may take blood to make the state change it's mind.
The father is hoping it's not their blood (thinking the kid may go crazy) and the stepmother is hoping it's not the kid's (thinking she may go crazy). Crazy situation, eh? ;)
Of course if anything does happen shouldn't a jury place the blame on the state for allowing such a mixed up kid to not get reform training in a reform school?
Yes and no. There are special hs for troubled kids, but nothing like the boarding school they used to have.
Some still exist.
Really? I thought they were shut down because of deaths.
Above, I have a friend with one in a state school in Duluth. Dunno the name of it.
I stand corrected.
At my high school there was this separate area on one of the campuses (it was a two campus school) that the kids all called "the cage" where all of the difficult, drugged up, or pregnant kids would go.
