  1. In the good old days, public schools in Pennsylvania were safe and crime-free. Wayward youths in were “disappeared” from public schools and sent to a remotely located reform school that had an ominous name like Thorn Hill and Morganza. The rules and discipline were strict and firmly enforced. The “students” studied and also worked, farming the surrounding land to raise their food, learning trades, and sometimes working on local farms.

Even sadder is that corporations like Taking a Step Beyond exist and believe that a populated location for their facility is necessary. Send these children out into the country with no internet, cell phone service, and places to hang out. Teach them to appreciate God, nature, education, hard work, respect for others, self-discipline, and self-sufficiency if you want to save them.
