Congressional “Hearing on “Child Abuse and Deceptive Marketing by Residential Programs for Teens”” – This is the second House Committee on Education and Labor “Hearing on “Child Abuse and Deceptive Marketing by Residential Programs for Teens”. The hearing was held on April 24th, 2008. The history here is that Rep. George Miller (D-CA) requested an investigation into this industry and sent the request to then Attorney General John Ashcroft who refused to investigate dating back to 2004 and earlier. Miller then requested a Government Accountability Office (GAO )investigation. These hearings provided an opportunity for the GAO and others to testify regarding their experiences and findings in regards to false advertising, fraud, and institutional child abuse.
