Makes Appearance On American Journal
Michael DeSisto, Executive Director of The Desisto School in Stockbridge, Massachusetts appeared on Nancy Glass's American Journal, on May 27, 1995. American Journal is a national TV news magazine and was doing a segment on actor Judd Hersh's son being busted for drug possession. Michael was describing how Judd Hersh was extremely supportive as a parent of a student at DeSisto. However, the overall tone of the segment was critical of Judd Hersh as a parent, giving more weight to the comments critical of Judd made by his ex-wife that Judd was always too busy for his son, and seeming to automatically assume that it is always the parent's fault when a child gets in trouble.
