I was a student at Mountain Park from 97 to 98. It wasnt until a few years ago, when I was in a psych class learning about the Stanford Prison Experiment, that I was finally able to sort out and express exactly what the Wills and Gerhardts had done. I had always understood that they were sick and twisted people that hurt struggling kids, but I wasnt able to clearly express to anyone else the degree of psychological torture they inflicted. After years of trying to suppress and forget my terrifying experience there, I am finally ready to share.
16 years later, I still become paralyzed with fear at the mention of MP. This morning a facebook friend tagged me in a post laughing about MP. I hadnt thought about it in almost a year, and reading the comments got me so upset, I could barely calm down in front of my children.
All day Ive been mulling over an idea that has crossed my mind too many times to count, but Ive never had the courage to put into action. It is time to write about it and publicly expose the abuse. This is why I am posting. I have read several small individual stories, even a few law suits, but those people are still out there trying to hurt more children. It is time to join together and collectively tell the world what really happens inside their schools. We arent troubled children anymore. Someone will finally listen to us and help us shut them down for good.
If you, or someone you know would like to share their story about any of the Wills or Gerhardts schools with me, my name is Andrea and you can reach me via email firstname.lastname@example.org or friend me on facebook https://www.facebook.com/andrea.tsfl
Thank you for listening
P.S. If you have some extra time, I highly recommend watching the documentary on the Stanford Prison Experiment http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_LKzEqlPto to better understand the specific psychological tactics they used on us.
