Child Error (
Academy City's response on Child Errors
Like many modern cities, there are many orphanages such as Asunaro Park and the Advanced Education Department, built to provide care for children abandoned in Academy City, these facilities provide basic education to the children and probably many other necessities.
However not all facilities were built in the pure effort on providing for the Child Errors, as with the case of the Child Errors overseen and taught by Kiyama Harumi, who from the very beginning knew that they were to be used in an experiment led by Kihara Gensei in developing the Crystallized Esper Essence under the pretense of it being relatively safe and harmless, the children were sent into an indefinite coma by the experiment, and were deprived of immediate medical assistance. It is unknown how many other Child Error experiments are occurring within the city.
Apparently, Academy City seems to only be concerned that the now 'missing' parents/guardians are no longer paying tuition.
