Seems the times they are not a changin:
What's ironic is that as long as these schools are operated under the legal radar, either in foreign countries or in secluded devotee communities, this type of crap will keep going on.
Devotees live in terror of the "outside" world and often send their kids to such "schools" in hopes of the best, but instead, get the worst.
And if the abuse is not at the hands of teachers and fellow students, then it is at the hands of the larger doctrines woven into their ideology. Children are afraid of the opposite sex, they are afraid of having feelings and emotions and they are afraid to speak up and have no one to talk to.
Yes, they smile for pictures and grit through it all, but the fact remains that both in Butler's PI schools, as well as ISKCON and other off-shoot krishna groups there is endless abuses, physical, and mental, emotional and ultimately spiritual.
In the end, most students are left to make sense of their young life in these cults on their own. As they grow up, mature and have REAL experiences, they wither resent how they were raised or they know nothing else and simply stay in it because it's all they know how to do. They ultimately feel awkward outside the fold of the cult and need to formulate an identity within its confines.
Run people. Run Fast and far.
