Am I the first one to notice this?
On the front page of the Huffington Post, there is an article entitled: REALLY SPECIAL EDUCATION.
"Are lap dances an effective therapy for attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder or drug addiction? It doesn't seem like a question that should require a serious answer -- but a state investigation of Oregon's Mount Bachelor Academy (MBA) has substantiated allegations made by students and staff that such "therapy" was part of the school's "emotional growth" curriculum and forced an emergency shutdown of the campus."
Holy Cow. Right up there with the deer fragger, the pregnant man, and the balloon lawn chair guy.
You know, I've had my doubts about these types of schools going all the way back the "Tough Love" movement. I think Tough Love probably works at about two moments in an addict's life -- at every other moment it's a disaster. If you trust the guy to know that moment, which I absolutely don't.
And I can't help but wonder about all the home schooling going on, too. Most of it's probably just fine, but still. Public schools have to pass a whole lot of scrutiny, and maybe there's a reason for that.
