D.C. What is a Public-Private University Contract a/k/a Government Subsidized Entity. Answer: Government RICO scheme

June 7, 2010

D.C. started working on creating a Public-Private partnership, not to benefit the youth, but to maximize Federal Revenue a/k/a.  Don’t for a minute think that this is about the youth.  This is a money laundering and youth brainwashing scheme where a private University is paid public funds to indoctrinate youth.

Exactly why is a private University’s school of social work being placed in charge a a juvenile justice program and not the Department of Education.

For years, the District has had few options for girls involved in serious crimes. The female detention center at the old Oak Hill complex in Laurel was a decrepit mess before it was shuttered. Since then, the city often has had to choose between sending such girls to faraway facilities or sending them nowhere at all and instead supervise them in the community, as happens with most delinquent boys and girls.

It’s one of the reasons the District has hundreds of troubled children living at great expense in private facilities around the country, and it is one of the reasons why juvenile justice officials for years have been talking about creating a local all-girls’ facility for some of the more serious offenders who’ve been committed to the custody of the D.C. Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services.

Come next month, the agency will finally have a place for some of those girls. A new, privately run facility is to open on a quiet block in the Marshall Heights neighborhood of Southeast Washington. The 5,500-square-foot house, built in 2007 and renovated by the operators of the new program, Metropolitan Educational Solutions, will take a half-dozen girls at the outset. Some will be returning from distant facilities, while others are at risk of being sent to such places, known as residential treatment centers.

With a partnership planned with Howard University, the Lillian D. Worthington Residential Facility is intended to serve not only as a home but a bridge to education beyond high school — in a vocational training program, community college or four-year university.

Unlike a group home, where residents usually leave to go to school, the residents of Worthington will have their primary classroom on site, similar to residential treatment centers.

And when the residents, expected to range in age from 15 to 20, do venture out, say, for a lesson at a museum or a visit to Howard, they will be escorted by facility staff just as they would be at a residential center, officials said.

The program is one small step in the District’s effort to reduce its reliance on distant residential centers to house children caught up in the juvenile justice, child welfare and mental health systems.

“For too long the District has sent lots of its children to states all over the country,” DYRS Interim Director Marc Schindler said. The contract with Metropolitan, a for-profit corporation that also operates a group home for boys in the District, is an important step in building better options, Schindler said. “We have to invest in our communities.”

A study last year by University Legal Services, a federally mandated watchdog program for people with disabilities, found that more than 300 young people from the District were in residential treatment centers, with scores of them in facilities more than 300 miles from the District. The annual cost in local and federal dollars was more than $60 million, according to government statistics cited by ULS.

That’s $200,000 per child.  Making these children some of the wealthiest and best provided for in the world — unless, maybe, the money is not going to the children.

According to Obama, if you make over $200,000 you are rich. Each kid in residential care in Maryland bring into Maryland $200,000 per year.

Where is the money coming from? . . .

Social Security, Medicaid and  Assistance for Needy Family

While Social Security and Medicaid are going broke, the system still manages to pay out $200,000 per child, per year out of these funds.

Yeah right, there’s no money laundering going on here.
