NPR's Madeleine Brand talks with Nadya Labi, senior editor of the magazine Legal Affairs, about the "transport" industry — professionals hired by parents to take difficult teenagers away to reform schools or residential treatment centers. We also hear the personal story of Kelly Lauritsen, who describes her experience being transported to a reform school in Mexico four years ago.
