Future Friday with Tom May – Episode 16 – Corey Ciresi (Lee Corey Oswald, The Family Foundation School) – Our main focus of discussion today is his time spent at a now-defunct small boarding school for special needs adolescents in rural Hancock N.Y. called The Family Foundation School, aka The Family School, aka Allynwood Academy. The school closed in 2014, They said it was due to money problems from declining enrollment. However, they were plagued with accusations of abuse for many years. The family school was one of several residential programs for special-needs adolescents that were discussed in congressional hearings in 2007 and 2008. In 2018 a front-page article in the New York Times described a pattern of deaths by overdoes, suicide, and other misadventure among school alumni. One alumna tallied 101 such deaths, the vast majority of them before the age of forty.
