I have Googled the Lehigh Learning and Adjustment School and I assume it may be attached to the Carbon Lehigh Intermediate Unit 21, because I can't find anything that has a website for LLAS. Is that right? I was curious what they did and what kinds of kids they worked with. Why doesn't the article give us a little more information on that? You can assume that it's just troubled youth by the name, but I hate to assume and wanted more information. I still didn't find any information on it.

Personally I do not care what kind of school it was, these girls are basically adults at their age, not much change in the yr or 2 till 18 and are old enough to accept the punishment received. At first I thought it was going to be a bubble gun or pencil threat made by a kindergartner or close too the age of a kindergartner,surprisingly it was a real threat though that shouldn't be ignored.
