  • I was a former student at Youth Detention Center and to be honest with you I did'nt think the schooling was all that good at Bob Richards. All we did in coach Days class was watch movies that he enjoyed and sleep if thats what you wanted to do. Ms. Luwis was alright but she would give you math work that did'nt fit the level you was on. Brock, what can i say aout Brock, Brock was Brock and he did what he had to do with the students. Brock was my man cause he would step up to me and keep it real. Over all the school was not all that great. It's not what it's put out to be.

  • Bob Richards school was a wonderful school. You may sit and think that hay, I'm in YDC it's suppose to be a bad place, Yes it was a bad place, but the teachers there were terrific. I hope I would never go back but I would love to make visits to see the JCO'S in Charlie Pod, and of course the wonderful teachers.
