Good article! (Had to go up one level from the link to find it). It seems that the official reason for kicking it out of the middle school was that it was "geared toward third graders". That was my impression of ALL the courses that I took - but they were a great demo for the word patronizing :o

Controversial Curriculum

A San Antonio middle school is under fire tonight for trying to change
the curriculum. Zachry Middle School tried to introduce a new way to
help get students to learn with a kit called “Learning How To Learn.�
The problem? The kit has a connection to a controversial religion
called, scientology. 13-year-old James Anderson is an 8th grader at
Zachry Middle School and his mom, Christine, thinks the school dropped
the ball with his education. “It makes me mad...I am very angry.� The
learning kit includes grammar books, dictionaries and teaching manuals
based on the beliefs of L. Ron Hubbard. Christine looked him up. “It
was the Scientology that knocked me over the head.� Hubbard is the
founder of the Church of Scientology, a controversial religion. The
kit and cost to train the teachers on how to use the curriculum
amounts to $13,599 of taxpayer money. Christine thinks it's waste. “I
want to see this taken out of the school and I don't want to see this
in any NISD school.� The school district was listening. “We want to
use the taxpayers money the best way we can. We don't think the
purchase of these materials is the best way to use those funds� said
NISD spokesman Pascual Gonzalez The kit doesn't appear to include any
religious material, but what bothers NISD officials most is the fact
that the materials are geared toward third graders. The kits have been
returned and the district is working to get all that money back. And
from now on, all schools within the district have to get approval to
change any part of the curriculum. Send news tips/story ideas to
