This investigation focuses on the Judge Rotenberg Center, the only school in the country to routinely punish students with electric shocks. This investigative story is the first to reveal what day-to-day life is like in the school. The reporters found that the school's methods are not scientifically just, that students as young as eight or nine are routinely shocked for minor transgressions, and that levels of student violence remain high, though most of the violent behavior is directed to the school's staff.
