Testimony of Teens Kidnapped w/ authorization of parents and taken to overseas "behavior modification" schools.

Testimony of Teens Kidnapped w/ authorization of parents and taken to overseas "behavior modification" schools.

Has anyone else had experience with schools like this, whether directly or through a family member or friend ?
