The Florida School for Boys - Reform School was located on 1500 acres of land in the North Florida woods. It was alleged that this was a place of unspeakable horrors for the American children imprisoned there. There was chronic physical abuse of children at the Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys and there are allegations of sexual abuse as well at this high-risk residential commitment facility for boys 13-21 years of age. The management and affairs of the School have been run under a number of different names and entities during the last 109 years. Former students who attended the reformatory school during the late 1950’s through 1960’s alleged that during their tenure they were subjected to repeated physical abuse by staff members as a form of discipline. Today's guest will Roger Kiser who was a student from June 1959-March 1960. He will be sharing his own personal knowledge of what occurred at the White House in Florida. This abuse was finally investigated by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
