I knew him in Running Springs. He was a complete jackass. He didn't give a damn about helping the kids - just playing mind games and power tripping on them.

Sorry to see he's still hurting people.

here's where that sadist Russ decker is at now. Working for a "christian" counseling company. Wonder if they know the details of his infamous stay at CEDU?

What is going on here? I know FTC. He is telling you the truth - what issue do you have with him?

RMA - you identified this person by first name - but this person only signed with a letter. Would you please consider editing your post and removing the name? I'm sure it would be appreciated.

I agree - that person is a jerk. In fact, sounds like Ottawa to me, as well. Interesting.

This must be a brainwashed staffer. I mean, why is this person even here? Why is this person being so hostile and disrespectful of how other folks are feeling?

"i'm sorry but does it say 7,381 posts under your name? sweetheart, you are the ultimate example of what I just wrote!"

You cannot know the impact of CEDU on people working there. There is no need to be hostile to this person.

"To the Therapist person,

So, its been ten years since you were fired and you are still carrying a grudge, still feeling guilty because kids you knew for the less than a year didn't get the help only you could provide?

I dunno it seems like you need a therapist to get over it!"

Joe, some of us are former staff and don't want any legal hassles from CEDU.

And why would you care if someone who you talked shit about knows you did it. You obviously hate their guts. Anyway if any one else agrees post a message with you opinion. Oh, yeah and one more thing, fuck yall.

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.

"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.  "

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.

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!

Anon, talk with your parents and tell them how you are feeling. Tell them you need help getting over this. You may need help from a REAL therapist. You need help NOW and you need to ask your parents to pay for it.

"I went to cedu a couple years ago and nothing has been the same since. I am fucked up now. I can't function anymore, I am so depressed. all I want to do is die. I am lonely, but I cant leave the house to see my friends. I am hungry, but I can't get myself to eat. I don't know what to do. I feel pathetic and I dont know where to turn. "

I rememeber hearing staff say that to kids. I remember asking, "Why are you saying that? I thought we all lived in our heads...? Isn't 'being intellectual' an important part of being human?" Russ and Brandi hated that. I would have said, "an integral part..." but I figured that would be too big a word for them.

I swear, it felt like a cult. I was glad I could leave, but sorry the kids had to stay.

I do not know about John Lenon, but when I was at CEDU, in our training, they said it was based on Synanon. I didn't know anything about Synanon, but I learned pretty quickly! LifeSprings is a Christian group. CEDU is completely secular and has lots of Jewish kids there. Someone told you wrong.
