    Imagine it? I don't have to. I lived it. This has been going on for a long, long time under the guise of 'therapy'. The Seed and Straight Inc. had public funding through NIDA and FDLE as well as medicaid and other sources. These same program operators have set up public sector boot camps through the juvenile justice systems in many states. They are some sneaky characters because they're zealots. They believe they're saving the world so they'll stop at nothing.

    Thank goodness that the legislative attempt to socialize private schools (vouchers) failed. Could you imagine the state subsidizing such a place and inadvertently encouraging nefarious characters to start up private schools just to get a piece of the money pie.
