Description
 
Louise Armstrong (au). An investigative journey into a multibillion-dollar industry that imprisons America’s children -- for profit. Every year, thousands of kids are transported to a locked world where strange rules prevail & language is without meaning. Those in authority  administer drugs to kids, forcibly restrain them, & lock them in isolation. Armstrong guides us through this world of “therapeutic” institutions -- the psychiatric hospitals, the residential treatment centers, the schools for the “emotionally disturbed”. What is it like for kids in this world? And what has brought us to accept & endorse the ideologies of the authorities who administer this psychiatric policing to our children? And what makes this system so seemingly impervious to challenge?
