Extractions: State News Staff Writer Frank Ewers thought it was important that his 11-year-old daughter, Madeline, have the opportunity to learn a second language while she was still in elementary school. But since money woes have forced East Lansing public schools to stop offering foreign language classes in its elementary schools, Ewers and other parents have had to find alternative routes to educate their children in a foreign language. At camp, children learn foreign languages through hands-on art projects, games, foreign television programs and field trips. too Mary Ann Jesse, president of the East Lansing Public School Board, said foreign language classes are something the school board would eventually like to see permanently at the elementary level.

Security for Community Press Release Israel/Middle East ADL: Palestinian Summer Camps Teach Terror Tactics, Espouse Hatred Some Found to Be Funded by UNICEF New York, N.Y., September 9, 2002 The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) today expressed "extreme concern" with recent reports detailing the "education in terror" Palestinian children were receiving at summer camps organized by the Palestinian Authority, Hamas and Islamic Jihad, among others. According to the reports, UNICEF funded a number of these camps. "Summer camp, where children traditionally participate in sing-alongs and color wars, has been warped by the Palestinians into a sickening display of hatred and intolerance," said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director. "We are extremely concerned by these reports, particularly since they detail that some of these camps were funded by UNICEF, an organization that has traditionally sought to improve the welfare of children. Therefore, it is imperative that UNICEF scrutinize the camps it sponsors and immediately withdraw funding from those whose only service is to provide an education in terror." At the summer camps, children were encouraged to learn how to play a role in terrorist attacks, learn how to shoot guns and were given instruction in how to blow up Israeli buses and settlements. Suicide bombers were also glorified with a number of camp groups being named for them.

Extractions: Wilderness programs are usually short term, but they have a definite impact on the teen. Typically while in the program the teen sincerely feels the need to change and may even admit that he or she needs to change their behaviors. In some cases educational consultants will recommend a wilderness program to prepare a teen for a long term placement. Sometimes a wilderness program alone is not long enough to make lasting changes in the teen's life. These outdoor therapy programs emphasize behavioral and emotional change. Wilderness programs range in time from two weeks to 3 months. The typical cost for a wilderness program ranges from $8,000 to $20,000. Wilderness camps teach teenagers cooperation, self-reliance, and responsibility for personal behavior. Teens learn how to work within a group and respond to positive peer pressure from other students in the group who have already experienced the first few levels or phases of the program. Parents report higher levels of self-esteem, a stronger sense of personal responsibility, a renewed sense of accomplishment and the ability to achieve, as well as improved behavior within the family setting upon return home. The emphasis on behavioral change through well-established therapeutic techniques makes the wilderness experience an affective program for a troubled teen. Wilderness programs can be a good short-term program during which therapists and parents can evaluate a child's continuing needs, possibly recommending continuation in a boarding school or some other long term placement.
