It's long...something like 100 pages or more. And it's pretty dry reading. I can't believe the amount of research that went into it (I knew it had to be founded in truth, of course, being a research project from FSU, but wow...the Bibliography page was something like 3 or 4 pages on it's own). They researched all the county records from 1900 on, tracked down death certificates, news clippings, looked through all the school record books since 1900 to 1970-whatever when the privacy act when into effect to find these kids records of entering and/or death. And at times I just wanted to stop reading, but I didn't want to miss anything important that might have been at the end. Some of it is blacked out and I'm not quite sure why. I have a laptop and figured out after the first couple sections that were blacked out that if I turned my screen a certain degree I could read the blacked out section. I don't know if it just didn't have the backup it needed to still be included with the report or they blacked it out because it didn't have much to do with the research or what, but I didn't see anything wrong with keeping it in. Of course, I'm not an expert.I wish I could have opened that pdf. I tried a couple of times. It just froze my computer. Maybe there were a lot of people trying to download it at the same time or something. I definitely want to look at it.
It is so distressing to imagine this happening for so long.
