The Center for Cultural Interchange (CCI)

Not only did we host a HORRIBLE exchange student for a month and a half (drug addiction to beta-blockers that he took for anxiety, stealing, lying, severe depression) but they LIED about why he was moved from his first host family. Our CCI rep told us that the host family heard a noise outside, got guns, told the brat to hide and ran outside. She claimed he was in a dangerous situation and he needed a new host family right away. It was a lie. When I asked him about it, he had no idea what I was talking about. He was moved because of his severe behavior problems, flunking all of his classes, refusing to speak or participate in every aspect of life. He did the exact same thing here and our Area Rep wouldn't help at all. Everytime she'd call, he was in bed asleep because that's all he did. Come home from school and go straight to bed until morning. If we made him stay up, he pouted and refused to speak to us. He was supposed to be on academic probation from flunking all his classes in Texas but our Area Rep decided not to file the paperwork because she wanted to give him another chance. He flunked every class here too, including Art. How do you flunk Art? We took him to Disney, to Seaworld, to holiday events and he wouldn't speak, wouldn't participate, nothing. He snuck around the house in the middle of the night and ended up drinking all of my cooking alcohol while we were asleep.
Long story short, we told the area rep to come get him We waited longer than we should have because the Area Rep kept saying that if he screwed up at our house then he would be sent home. We felt sorry for him and kept trying to talk to him and work with him. When we gave up, she wouldn't take him. She wanted us to wait a little while longer. When we said no, she told us that she couldn't come get him. When we told her that she comes and does her job or we drop him off at the police station, she finally came for him. On January 13th.I went to the school and told them that he was not staying with us and that we weren't responsible for anything he did at the school (because our Area Rep lied to us once again and had found him a new host family).
Today I get a bill from the school. $277.69 for his textbooks that he never turned in.
I. Am. SO. Pissed. Off!
