    Residential/Boarding Schools

    in News

    Host Russ Letica will discuss the painful and horrible legacy of the Residential Boarding Schools. 
    The Reservation Boarding School System was a war in disguise. It was a war between the United States government and the children of the First People of this land. Its intention was that of any war, elimination of the enemy. The reason this war is difficult to recognize is because it was covered by the attractive patina of a concept called "Manifest Destiny." Manifest Destiny was a philosophy by which the white european invader imagined themselves as having a divine right to take possession of all land and its fruits.
    In any encounter with mainstream historical accounts, it is obvious that Native People were very little more than a "problem" to be solved by the colonizers. To white society, they were heathens and behaved like savages. They had no written language, their children were unschooled, and for the most part they didn't know how to stay in one place, many moved their villages according to the seasons. If these people, these Natives, were ever going to amount to anything in this United States of America, they had to be taught the proper and acceptable way to live. All aspects of Native culture or way of life were unacceptable to the white european mind.

    Social Networking in Schools – Can Schools Demand Passwords

    in Legal

    Employers are not the only ones demanding social media passwords – schools are doing so too.  There has been lots of media attention about this – resulting in a surge of legislative activity on the issue.  In Illinois, a new law went into effect this year allowing school officials to have access to passwords to students’ social media accounts in certain situations.  The concern, of course, is how this impacts a student’s right to privacy under the Constitution and state laws.  This podcast with Kelly Anderson will explore the new law and how it could affect your children.

    Lon was joined by Jennifer Steiner on December 23, 2014 to talk about how InnerChange Residential Therapy has successfully grown into six programs.  Jennifer is the new CEO of InnterChange and excited about the future of this growing corporation.  Part of the secret was each acquisition was deliberate and chosen for their compatibility with the vision of InnerChange, and had excellent reputations for quality relational work with students and families.  Lake House Academy-NC is the latest acquisition, coming after a several year management contract they had been in with InnerChange.  Lake House Academy works with girls ages 10-14, adds pre-teen girls to the groups served.  InnerChange in the past has predominately worked with all girl programs, except for Oakley School-UT which is coed.  However, according to Steiner, InnerChange does not limit itself to the populations they serve and hold open the possibility of expanding through additional coed schools or even all male programs.  Other InnerChange Schools are: Sunrise Residential Treatment Center-UT, Fulshear Treatment to Transition-TX, Chrysalis-MT and New Haven Residential Treatment Center-UT.
