Hello and happy Friday:
I just wanted to reach out to you to thank you for your website Straight Inc. Copouts. I, myself, am a former student of an abusive WWASP boarding school program (I was first sent 11 years ago this November).
Recently, after college and creating a writing career for myself, I’ve wanted to understand both the “system” of these schools and my own experiences. I had no idea schools like this existed even back in the 60s. Your website was both eye-opening and heartbreaking. I am so grateful for your sharing these stories, as they have helped me in ways I could never put into words.
I was even more surprised to find that one of these Straight programs was very close to my childhood home. Learning these stories was vital to me in my slow discovery of my past self…one I had buried for a long, long time.
So, simply, thank you.
Sending good wishes your way.
