CEDU - BROWN SCHOOLS CLOSED!!!!!!!!!!!!
« on: March 26, 2005, 05:46:00 PM »
I know a staff at CEDU - they just told staff that they are closing and they CAN'T pay the staff!

The schools got a call at 4pm yesterday Pacific Time - March 25, 2005. They were told they had 24 hours to get the kids out. There are a few high schoolers there today because their parents are out of the country and it would take one more day for them to get there and take their kids home.

Parents have pooled some money to pay some staff something... But most staff got NOTHING - no pay AT ALL for their last two weeks of work.

The story is that administrators embezzled money from the school. I do not know the details - I am telling you what the person I know has told me. She was a new hire and does not know all the administrators. BUT - she was there when they announced that they got a phone call and all the schools were closing in 24 hours. ALL of them!

I am told it was the CEO of Brown Schools. They had filed for bankrupcy and NOT told the staff. The staff were told at 4pm (Running Springs) that the kids needed to start leaving the next morning. That's LESS than 24 hours.

As a member of this town we have seen MANY past employee's do just what the Schools do.  Have parents sign a waiver and give up some cash (I do not have facts on how much just that I know people would not foster care for free) and then they "care for" their kids.  The way it looks now our town will have a few more "rich kids" living around here and going to public school.  Funny in a strange way yet not funny at all that parents don't know how to love and care for their own kids and feel they must DO something as bad as give them up!

I'm sure the law suits are playing a big part in this.  But did it not always come down to money?

That was the JEST of what I got from the school who had it how much and if you thought your time was worth more than they wanted to pay you were gone.

The CEDU program has been in trouble since the time of the Brown School take over.  It was a bad financial decision from the beginning and Brown School never got things under control.  There wasn't embezzlement...just too much cost and not enough money coming in...can't do business that way for long.  If ed consultants lose faith, they don't send kids, no money comes in, staff is let go, consultants lose more faith, the school starts taking the wrong profile of students, understaffed and with the wrong population--the program stuggles, the numbers go down, the consultants stop sending kids...out of business.  Pretty straight forward.

Yeh, and Brown didn't have the best reputation going into this. They had been under fire for death due to illegal restraints, sexual misconduct, and other problems before they dumped their psych hospitals and moved into the 'educational' field. Could have something to do with decreased enrollment. I pretty sure their reputation is fairly well known.

Are you sure? My source was an employee and she is absolutely certain. Of course, she worked there for a short period of time. She was there part time and part time at my workplace. Frankly, we all told her she's MUCH better off not working in that hellhole. But she's sure that it was embezzelment.

So how do we go about getting totally credulous people to lose faith in the unworthy?

And how did the Chuck E. Dederich University come to be on the rocks, and so bought out by Brown to begin with?

BTW, I don't know if I buy the embezzelment story, either. I've read that Brown was in hock for dozens of $5m/pop fines. This is a damned expensive industry, if you're not getting away w/ it.

Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervor, for patriotism is indeed a double-edged sword. It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind. And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry. Rather, the citizenry, infused with fear and blinded by patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the leader and gladly so. How do I know? For this is what I have done. And I am Caesar.

How big is Brown Schools?

Is the beginning of the end, or just
a program cut, and eventual real estate
sell off due to either cash flow, or
pending lawsuit payouts, or the alledged
embezelment?

I don't know how big they were. (it's time we started using the past tense  ::cheers:: ) But they had a muthu big reputation. I hope Lon's taking it alright (which is to say just close enough to a nervous breakdown to seek help, but not close enough to actually suffer permanent harm)

They might be giants. It's significan't. Lots of former CEDU students suddenly bold enough to pipe in. Good for them, for sure, at least. Just hunker and watch. We'll see.
