the turnover rate at that facillity is so great that i am surprised anyone remembers anyone.  the bundys do not treat their employees right and so many of them leave.  also, will cannot stand it when people offer other ideas or suggestions from anyone.  she has to be in control and all the time.  she is a complete phsycho!  i know....i was a fam rep when it first opened.  i probably was one of the better staff there and didnt let her brainwash me into hurting the kids emotionally.

man, all i gotta say is fuck tht place. nothing but damn liers and manipulaters.cheating ppl out of their money and valuable time(where we could actually be in the world TRYING to do something instead odf a locked down facility where the only thing your parents could hear is the BULLsHIT the staff says.. what makes ppl think tht all these ppl in it for ur money are actually gonna tell u the truth if the truth will cause students to be pulled out, students being pulled out=less money. ppl lie for  a reason. these ppl are just hungry for money and power. but KARMAS A BITCH and there time WILL come. trust. just let all these parents keep there money, cause just like i didnt change .i know most didnt. stop wasting your time. i wasnt there through the worst but stilll,i was there and it was bad, theres no need for a place like tht. the worlds already fucked up enough. yea i went there. for a yr. 2006. im still me. if u get there. best piece of advice, fake it till u make it. its what i did. but now i say fuck all the damn ppl tht didnt care, if u did, ur cool, in my book, and i know who it is n shit. much love for the ppl tht had an impact in my life. dont get me wrong, i did get shit out of it, and i did learn alot about myself and other shit, but the time,money, and physical/mental abuse... definately not worth it. at all.. ms willa aint shit. thayer aint shit, and i plan on doing some shit about it. cause the one and only thing tht thayer taught me is tht i CAn be the shit, and nothing and or no1 will stop me. bye bye thayer. you WILL shut down.

I was very interested in finding this thread as it seems to be filled with a lot of repressed anger and hate. I researched the information out there about Thayer and Willa Bundy and after reading a lot of things it really seems like a lot of this nonsense is unfounded. I could not find anywhere that Thayer was EVER prosecuted or actually charged with any abuse or wrongdoing. In my experience when there is a lot of information out there that is REAL and TRUTHFUL that there is prosecution behind them. But what I found was a lot of repeated information that didn't even seem accurate at ALL. While I imagine that kids do not and did not like being sent to a school the things that some of them claim seem just kind of silly to me. If all the information out there is true then why hasn't Social Services or Law enforcement ever charged them with anything? When there is actual evidence of abuse I will believe these things until then, I'm giving Thayer the benefit of the doubt that they are actually out there to do good and help people.

Well, the local media reports that the sheriff has stated that:
Quote
Sheriff's deputies and former staff members and students have alleged that students at Thayer Learning Center are forced to participate in unreasonable fitness activities, denied medical attention and punished in bizarre ways.
But as the article also explains the procecutor didn't do his job.

"Why" is the obivious question and maybe it has something to do with job in the community.

The Kansas City Star also suggest that it is the case

Quote
KIDDER, Mo. - Although some Kidder residents express concern about allegations surrounding Thayer Learning Center, there are city and church leaders who passionately defend the school.
Thayer has provided an economic boon to struggling Caldwell County and the city of Kidder, which has fewer than 300 residents. It's easily the largest employer in the city and - coupled with a related business operated by Thayer owners John and Willa Bundy - has pumped more than $10,000 of tax...
They settled out of court with the parents of the boy who died there. If they were innocent normally you should expect that they would have bashed the parents in court. Why didn't they?

What happened to all the kids when the school closed down?  Did any of the kids return to graduate after July 2009?  What happened to the phone call counselor called Ms. Sandi?
