A Life Gone Awry: My Story of the Elan School --????
« on: December 23, 2011, 02:17:30 AM »
While I served on the board of directors at CAFETY, I heard a lot of promotion about Wayne Kernochan's self-published book and how "100%" of the proceeds would be going to the CAFETY, Program Watch, and the Jani Foundation. At the time, my gut told me this was a marketing plow, but I like to give "survivors" the benefit of the doubt when at all possible. Then I noticed that CAFETY didn't ever receive a cent from Wayne. I can't speak for Program Watch, but I was surprised -- shocked, actually, to read this:
Quote
[To] learn that Wayne has said that the proceeds of this book go to the Jani Foundation. The Jani Foundation is not a foundation at all. It is merely the paypal account to Michael and Susan Schofield who made up this fake foundation using their daughters name to create it. Jani, their daughter has been highly promoted and publicized as one of the youngest schizophrenics in the country. She is 9. Michael and Susan have gotten tv shows and now even a book deal to promote this about their daughter. But what is not so readily told is that Jani was abused frequently in her early childhood prior to her diagnosis. Her father in his blogs even admits to abusing her though always excusing his actions and blaming her "illness". The abuse Jani experienced at the hands of her father included being shaken as a 2 month old infant. She was not taken to the hospital after this incident. She has been hit repeatedly by both of her parents, denied food, she has witnessed violence between her parents, she reported being molested by her father to a nurse while in residence at DCHS Alhambra and she has been medicated with overdoses of over the counter drugs to keep her compliant and make her sleep. All of this can be read as described by Michael in his own blog at janisjourney.org. What you will not learn at his website is that when Jani was 5 and being evaluated, it was discovered she had physical brain damage (ischemic thalamus). Michael and Susan have clamied at times this was caused by a stroke but they also admit that Jani never had a birth injury/ stroke. They also did not disclose the abuse to the drs when they had her evaluated.

This post was not to discredit the experiences of abuse at Elan School or to invalidate any who experienced them. Why I am questioning Wayne is because it does not make sense for him to be speaking out about the absues of children within a school and then to donate money to Michael Schofield who essentially abused his daughter and has tried to hide his actions by bringing attention to himself as a martyr father with a mentally ill child.

In learning about Wayne, the author of this book I have seen mention that he himself had never been a student at Elan himself but I do not know if this is true or not. What I do know is true is that Michael Schofield abused his daughter. That is abuse is no different then what likely happened at this school. All abuses of children are unacceptable.

So, Wayne, I think you've got some 'splaining to do? When were you planning on donating the proceeds to a legitimate non-profit, or was it your plan all along to funnel the money through this bogus PayPal account?

In other words, you haven't sent anyone a donation yet, besides this shady PayPal account you yourself set up. Is that right?

Did you promise to send 100% of your proceeds from your book to any charities, or didn't you? It's a simple question. And no, your own PayPal account doesn't count as a charity.

Yes or No would suffice.

Quote from: "Wayne Kernochan"
Do you do alcohol counseling?

Wayne, is that what a temper tantrum looks like?  :waaaa:

Sorry if I hurt your feelings (actually I'm not), but there is no need to denigrate people who really do suffer from alcoholism.

Alcohol has nothing to do with your dishonesty regarding: 1. Me, and things you say I say that I didn't say, and 2. You promising to donate "100% of the profits of your self-published book" to certain charities, which you never did, except maybe to your own PayPal account.

Am I missing something here, pal?

With Love and Holiday Cheer,

Eric Norwood
