These two schools arose from the same program, Safe Schools program in North Carolina. This program is designed to provide an approach to the reduction of violence in North Carolina’s public schools. Alternative Programs under in the Safe Schools program in North Carolina is designed to keep violent students from dropping out of the public school system, yet remove them from the regular public school.. This program is considered a "last chance".
Chapter 1:
"7:45 I arrive. I barely notice the barbed-wire fence anymore. It's just become part of the scenery. I park the car and stop to take a breath. I begin the trek toward the door. It's dreary again today, just like my mood. By the time I reach the door, my glasses need to be cleaned again. I open the door and say good morning to the downstairs office staff. "

Education in Burma
Schools & universities were shut for seven out of ten years between 1988-98.

The role of students and students' unions played a vital role in 1988 Democracy Movement. After the military had brutally crushed the people's uprising, they continued to establish a more aggressive dictatorship. SLORC carried on with the education policy which would cater for the perpetuation of dictatorship and which had been implemented by the previous governments. In reality the policy to promote the education standard only enhances military power. To materialize the policy, SLORC tried to control the triangular bases of education namely students, teachers and parents. To implement this policy, SLORC formed the National Education Committee of Myanmar which is chaired by Lt. Gen. Khin Nyunt,' the Secretary of SLORC.

ibiblio also distributes the software for the K12LTSP.
