I couldn’t attach the audit on my blog so here is the link.  It is appalling, shameful and quite disturbing and should be used to justify why NO more students are ever sent to these awful and harmful facilities……………………………  Go to more search options and put in Keyword GNETS and should pull up DOE: Georgia Network for Educational and Therapeutic Support (GNETS)


Jaime Sarrio’s AJC exclusive report on the Audit of GA’s GNET programs, otherwise known as Psychoed Centers.

Practices of harmful and deadly seclusion and restraint at these facilities was also embedded in our Advocacy for the new Seclusion and Restraint policy.


Feel free to distribute far and wide to other families and disability list servs.
