This video makes me sick following the NYT investigation. Absolutely unbelievable, straight brainwashing

When she said it was unbelievable that’s because it is. Read the Times article about how Mr. Landry fabricates the students transcripts and had them lie about their backgrounds so that they would get into Ivy League schools. It’s all been a lie, those poor students.

A good story but too bad it's all a big LIE. The school falsified grades, classes, and backgrounds of the kids. This is a setup for failure for these kids. Reality will hit once these kids start taking college courses they don't qualify for. They will be dropouts in the first semester. The Landry's should be arrested.

Brainwashed is an understatement. Surprised the warehouse and no teachers didn't tip you off to something fishy. Almost a cult.

Parental involvement not allowed. So we can hide the scam.

The interviewer was absolutely right when he said they were brainwashed.

I love how this guy is so skeptical about everything they're saying. Even at the end "They sound brainwashed."

No school has a 100% success rate. None. That is an impossible statistic

I am saddened that these kids were victims of unscrupulous people. And saddened for those kids who got college seats taken away from them because of them.

Watching this video and hearing that they don't want parents involved, 12hr days, no teacher for trig...ha!, It's so obvious that there was something fishy going on.

SCAM! TM Landry falsified students’ transcripts to get to Ivy League schools. And then the students struggle once they are in college because they were not qualified and equipped for college courses.
The school owners should go to jail for deceiving students, colleges and the public.

"Feed your kids, house your kids. Don't talk to them about education at all.." With what's come out now, this sounds horrible. The reporter kept saying "brainwashed" too like he knew something was up but just wanted to support them.

asian student works hard and gets into ivy league - he/she's regarded as a nerd with no talent or interests or personality.
black student works hard and gets into ivy league - he/she's regarded as achieving his/her dreams and reaching the stars.

100% acceptance rate into ivy league schools should have been a red flag from the beginning

When you hear words such as miracle and unbelievable, it's likely to be unreal.

Imagine how many much more deserving students were denied entry into Ivy League schools because of TM Landry...

Troubled, struggling 15 year olds have a "Trig book" from MIT and no teacher, The Today show just plays along with it. SHAMEFUL.
