"Study Technology" Rejected by Houston School

Post by Girlfriend » Thu Dec 16, 2004 3:05 am

FAIR USE QUOTE
Edwards had hoped that a proposed grant from Alief ISD's Smith Elementary would open the door for him to deliver monthly workshops to parents. School officials are looking to team up with a nonprofit in order to gain the grant that would bolster their onsite parent-learning center.

Principal Helen Wilk said she initially was unaware of the program's ties to Scientology. She stressed that the proposed grant would not include the use of any study-technology books in the school -- it would be limited to having Edwards speak to parents about helping their kids study.

However, late last week, school officials dropped Edwards from contention for the grant. Their decision: Utilizing a method related to Scientology could violate the separation of church and state.

Craig Malisow sure did his homework and managed to pack in more information paragraph for paragraph than I've seen in a paper other than the Chronicle (targeting Narconon) in a long time. Hope he gets lots of supportive emails for this story. No doubt the cult will be on to him big time.

Readers of Craig Malisow's article should consider sending a letter to the Houston Press, thanking them for Malisow's excellent work, and pointing out that Study Technology is covert religious instruction. The article is here:

And let's all wish Cathy Norman of the Houston Org a very happy holiday season. She's an OT5, and she confirmed the Xenu story. Well done, Cathy! It's so rare to find a Scientologist with real confront.

Tigs, see below under Troy Schulze's post in Houston thread. If you didn't see it at the time, he had a one-man play re Hubs and the cult in Houston awhile back.

That Malisow article was wonderful! and I hope too that many of us write to support it.

Yeah, more and more people are finding out the truth and every time they do, it spreads the word to more.

No one wants scientology or anything connected to it.
