55 bodies were found at the infamous Dozier Reform School in Marianna, Florida. Cadaver dogs were used to help locate the bodies. Several men like Johnny Lee Gaddy tells of stories of abuse that he suffered at the state-run school.
Johhny Gaddy was 11 years old in 1957 when he says police picked him up in Dade City and sent him to Dozier. He says guards would send dogs after boys who tried to run away, and he never saw several of them again. What’s more, he was counseled not to talk about what he saw…
“And when I was taking the garbage to the pit, and I told the guy, ‘That looks just like a boy’s hand right there, ” says Gaddy. ” He said, ‘Johhny, don’t ever say that again. If you don’t want to be like that, don’t ever say that again.’ So, everything that we seen and heard, we just had to not see it and not hear it.”
Please host Antoinette Harrell and her guest Johnny Lee Gaddy as they discuss this topic,
The Pathway to School Reform: Focus on Instruction in High Poverty Schools
According to the authors of a new heralded book called "Restoring Opportunity: The Crisis of Inequality and the Challenge for American Education," the dominant policy strategies for school improvement over the past two decades, has been test-based accountability and the standards movement. They have not succeeded because neither approach has focused on the difficult task of improving instruction in high-poverty schools and providing students with the coordinated learning experiences they need to master critical skills. This segment will focus on successful practices in schools where students of color have made six times the gains of what is deemed acceptable AYP.

The Florida School for Boys also known as the Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys was a reform school operated by the state of Florida in the panhandle town of Marianna from January 1, 1900 to June 0, 2011. For a time, it was the largest juvenile reform institution in the United States. A second campus was opened in the town of Okeechobee in 1955. Throughout its 111-year history, the school gained aa reputation for abuse, beatings, rapes, torture, and even murder of students by staff. Despite periodic investigations, changes in leadership and promises to improve, the allegations of cruelty and abuse continued. Many of the allegations were confirmed by separate investigations by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement in 2010 and the Civil Rights Division of the United States Department of Justice in 2011. State authorities finally closed the school permanently in June 2011.

McCain stated that sealing the borders is crucial now, and this is due to the threat of ISIS and he also stated he's one of the original sponsors of Comprehensive Immigration Reform, this sounds like something out of the Obama Play Book of let No Crisis go without getting something out of it.
