At this point neither I nor you know what actually happened. By doing a little searching through Google or some other search engine, you can find articles about what went on in residential schools and you can get a fairly good idea. Also read survivors accounts. Put the pieces together and you will understand it quite well. There is a lot of misinformation being put out by people who have agendas. Some of these people do not want to hear the whole story, but only the bad stuff. Usually the bad stuff overshadows everything else in the public's mind. But overall, the residential schools were a bad thing because of the bad stuff that happened. However, during the years of the schools, few people had an understanding about how this would turn out and didn't really understand the whole picture. It's easy to say this and that in hindsight, but the people that ran them probably thought they were doing the right thing as did the politicians in those years. The perverts and abusers in the system however didn't care about the consequences of their actions as criminals don't care about the consequences of their actions. How many of those kind existed in the schools is not really understood. That's why it would be nice if all documents were released and made public so everyone could understand this issue better. The problem is confidentiality to protect the innocent will be claimed and is likely why we will never know everything.
