Description

A four-part series by the Sun-Sentinel investigating "the treatment of children in privately run psychiatric centers in Florida... revealed deplorable conditions in many of the facilities... The series found that these centers had become dumping grounds for foster children and kids no one else wanted. State officials admitted that at least one-quarter of the children did not belong there.... All of this came at an enormous price to taxpayers, who were paying for the treatment at a cost of up to $300 a day per child."
