I just got off the phone with my contact from the board of directors. Before attempting to make changes, they would like to do a detailed discovery of the facts by interviewing both current and former participants and staff members of the Honor Academy. As my contact said, Teen Mania did not get into this situation overnight and they will not get out of it overnight. They plan to do a very thorough investigation in order to understand what changes really need to be made.
The immediate next step is to assemble the panel that will conduct the interviews and investigation. The panel will include individuals with backgrounds in psychology, counseling, medicine and pastoral/theological work. Once the panel has been assembled, they will let us know who sits on it and what their qualifications are.
They are not sure about the timeline, but hope to proceed with this discovery process as quickly and yet, as thoroughly, as possible. I think we can expect this phase to take a minimum of 2 months.
