Re: Four Winds Ranch - dumping ground for FAILED scientology kids Having a school for kids with disabilities makes sense. The US government mandates that all schools must provide for their handicapped population (special needs kids, wheelchair ramps, etc) or provide alternate schooling. Unless you build the alternate school yourself, you have to send the kids to a public special-needs school, where they wouldn't get their Scientology brainwashing. This was a case in New York State where there was a Hasidic school that didn't want to spend the money to install wheelchair ramps, and the state said they had to install them or the state would get custody of the kids and send them to a public school for the handicapped. The Hasidim didn't want their kids getting a secular education, so they eventually gave in.
