Why boarding schools produce bad leaders

The elite tradition is to send children away at a young age to be educated. But future politicians who suffer this ‘privileged abandonment’ often turn out as bullies or bumblers. A psychotherapist explains why

I had a very good friend in high school, and re-united with him by chance in college, who was a child of privileged abandonment. His father was the second in charge of a Fortune 100 household name company; he was worth 100 million back in the 90’s. He said his father told him, “Do what you want, just don’t embarass me.” My friend had an older brother who suffered from…
