:shock:

Snippet.....
Quote:
Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith have fired the head of their controversial private school The New Village Leadership Academy, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.

Jacqueline Olivier - the woman the famous husband and wife enlisted to set up their Calabasas campus - was axed from her $200,000 a year position via a telephone call from the Matrix actress.

"Jada phoned Jaqueline and told her that they had 'decided to go in another direction' with the school,” an insider told RadarOnline.com. “As head of the campus her position was becoming untenable as she did not agree with Study Tech and felt uncomfortable with it.” Olivier “thrashed-out” a severance package with the couple and “it’s understood that she signed a confidentiality agreement with regard to her time at the school.”

Calls to Olivier were not immediately returned but it is understood that she has taken-up another position within the educational recruitment field.

The school head and the superstar couple were said to have clashed about the school's mysterious Study Tech curriculum which was devised by Scientologist founder Ron L. Hubbard. While the school’s official website simply reads “Coming Soon!” under Head of School, RadarOnline.com has learned that Piano Foster is the new woman tapped for the role.

"They have appointed somebody else who is more 'in-line' with their thinking as to how the school should be run," the source added.



Study Tech rules, apparently. Celebs know better than those qualified educators who think study tech is rubbish, apparently.

The new school head appears in the scientology service completions.

Quote:
One of Study Tech's harshest critics, Dr. David S. Touretsky of Carnegie Mellon University, said, "Children are inculcated with Scientology jargon and are led to regard L.R. Hubbard as an authority figure. They are laying the groundwork for later bringing people into Scientology."

In June, Olivier defended Study Tech, telling the Los Angeles Times: "People tend to think Study Technology is a subject, but it is really just the way the subject is taught . . . the methodology doesn't have anything to do with content."

Touretsky said, "Study Tech is no more a secular learning methodology than wine and communion wafers are a Sunday morning snack."

It appears (though could be wrong, but the Celeb centre thing makes me think otherwise) that Darrell Foster has at least taken Basics at CC. But I can't find any scilon overtones for Darrell's company Omega Bodies Inc.

The name might look familiar because I believe Darrell Foster is married to Piano Foster.

Will spends a lot of time with Darrell for training and even golfing on the weekends.

It seems odd that so many people in Will Smiths life has a loose affiliation with Scientology, but maybe it is just LA, and I guess he can stay closeted if he wants to.

No new newsmedia just yet, but initial reports are coming in from WWP, after a protest at Will Smith's school today, that most of the non-scientology staff have left and student attendance/enrollment is down.

All the non-Scilon teachers from last year? Fired. Including the director of the school and the head of security.

There's more info, but I'll leave that to others.

Moderated Message:
Technically speaking, MOST of the non-scilon teachers are gone, but they were not all fired. Only one was fired (the director of the school). Several others left on their own. As far as we know, there are still a few non-scilon teachers working there.


anonymous wrote:
Oh my, what a difference a year can make.

A week or two ago we got a tip from a school insider that today was going to be the first day of school. We also were told that the Smith's would not be present, as they are all in China or something working on a new film that Jaden is in. This did not deter us from going since we are more interested in making our presence known to the parents than to the Smiths.

We showed up promptly at 8am and found a relatively quiet school. There were a couple of security guards standing outside, and 2 Sheriffs were parked about a block away on each side of the school.

The guards did not speak to us for the first 20 minutes or so, but they did call the police on us. The Sheriffs came over to make sure that we were being safe and cooperative, and were very pleased with their interaction with us. They mentioned that they'd gotten a "couple of phone calls" to complain about us from the school, but that as far as they could tell we were doing things right and they just wanted to make sure everyone was safe (traffic, etc).

The school complained that an anon was filming into the school yard (mostly of the parking lot, but I guess there were a couple of kids milling about) and asked that we be respectful of the children, to which we complied. At one point an Anon approached the group of guards + cops and said that he would be filming up into the air to catch the top of the school where the name is displayed. One of the guards immediately launched into a nice bullbaiting technique of "I don't know who you are or why you're so interested in these kids, or why you have some obsession with filming 5 year olds", etc. The Anon responded to the police officer with, "Is he insinuating that I'm a pedophile?", to which the cop again chuckled and said something like "Oh, he just doesn't know you". The Anon then insinuated that perhaps the guard was a drunkard.

We managed to all but stop traffic again as parents driving their kids to the REAL school nearby slowed down to read our signs. We were met with mixed emotions but mostly positive including several honks and thumbs-ups.

At one point an older gentleman came out of the school to talk to us. He did not say what his role was, but we think he was a parent. He asked why we were there and listened to what we had to say, occasionally commenting with "Yah, I read about that on the internet". We spoke for about 10 minutes before he went back into the school. 30 minutes later or so he drove off, but waved to us and made a comment of support. He also made a vague mention of something along the lines of, "Yah, we've lost a lot of students this past year".

That was definitely supported by what the other posters here said regarding the number of cars pulling in. Last year we probably saw closer to 50-75 parents arriving with their kids. This year it was maybe 30. The school is definitely having some enrollment issues which supports what we were told by another school insider that "many parents have pulled their kids out of school.. there have even been shouting matches in the parking lot with parents screaming about indoctrination and mentioning that they were going to run straight to Anonymous with information". We made a point of having a sign with an email address on it that anyone concerned could contact should they need help or information.

At one point another, older guy came out and introduced himself as Dave Hendry, the new Director of Security for the school and the Smiths. We exchanged contact information with him and had a brief conversation where we discussed the "transparency" that we had worked towards in the past, and our hopes that it would continue. He did not make any firm comments in either direction, but we were definitely left with the impression that those days were over. He told us that he would send us the email address of the school's PR person, and that we could contact them if we'd like.

At about 9:15 when we realized that everyone was already inside we decided to pack it up. We said goodbye and began walking our seperate directions only to find that we were being followed by one of the security guards (the aforementioned gentleman that made pedophilic remarks) with a video camera. We told him that we were done for the day and leaving, and that we would prefer he not follow us to our cars. He kinda laughed and just kept on following us.

After about 2 blocks we stopped and an Anon called Dave Hendry, their boss, to ask why his goons were harassing us. He replied that they were just making sure we got off the property OK, and when we replied that we were already 2 blocks away he said that he would call them to tell them to back off. A couple of minutes later we saw the goon answer his phone, talk for a few minutes, and then walk away from us.. only to begin walking up and down the street filming the license plate of all parked cars.

We called Dave back again to let him know what his goons were doing, and that it wasn't very neighborly, but he seemed disinterested and said they were just doing what they had to do.

So what are we left with? Basically, everything that the previous 'administration' had worked towards in terms of trying to toe the line and keep the school secular has been erased. Many of the teachers that were not scientologists have left, and we can only assume that many others are simply biding their time until they find a new job.

So is Will Smith a scientologist? Who knows. He has definitely taken courses (along with Jada), and he is definitely pushing their agenda, but does he consider himself a scilon? Probably not. He probably looks at is as more of a "self help" option than a religion, but it doesn't matter. He has been given all of the information repeatedly and he has chosen to ignore it. Not to be all godwins, but this is basically the same as a nazi-sympathizer that did not DO the bad acts, but chose to support them anyway even after being told the other side (by many independent parties, not just us).

Some video footage was taken along with some pictures. We will try to put stuff together and get it up as soon as possible, but for me at least it'll be a day or two to render things.

Thanks to all of the socal anons who woke up stupid early today to drive way the fuck out into the middle of nowhere to enturbulate. Good job.

[later note: It wasn't Hendry we met, but another Dave. I'm pretty sure that Hendry's name was mentioned but I can't recall anything specific. Sorry for the misinformation.]

Though the scilons might attempt to say that doing the Basic Study Manual course could be "secular", the clue here is that Piano Foster completed it at Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre International, not an Applied Scholastics location or training center.

PF's a scilon.

Big article today from ABC News....

What Goes on Inside Will Smith, Jada Pinkett-Smith's School?
The New Village Leadership Academy Allegedly Mimics Some Scientology Teaching Methods
http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/smi ... id=8331367
(4 pages)
(Printer friendly version in one page: http://abcnews.go.com/print?id=8331367 )

Comments are open and of course the scientologists are there. Why? It's not as if it is a "scientology school" is it? I mean Will and Jada, who have nothing to do with scientology or any scientologists, said so. :roll: /sarcasm

Quote:
Like many modern celebrity power couples, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith are not satisfied with just being actors.

I'll just snip right there and you can read the whole thing from the link.
Will and Jada SHOULD be satisified with "just being actors" because THAT is the ONLY thing which made them their fortune and what they are. i.e. rich and deliriously ignorant. What they need to do is to go to work and entertain their paying fans and STFU about perverting the course of education. Otherwise, at the very least, they should educate themelves instead of listening to fellow actors and school dropouts like Tom Cruise for their guidance.

The New Village Leadership Academy, founded by Will Smith and
Jada Pinkett-Smith, has a curriculum devised by Scientology founder
L. Ron Hubbard, according to reports.



No matter how hard they try, Will Smith and wife Jada Pinkett-Smith can’t dodge chatter that the private elementary school they run outside of Los Angeles is an outpost for Scientology thinking.

The New Village Leadership Academy, which Tinseltown stars paid $1 million for, opened for its second year this week, facing the “secret Scientologist” rumors yet again.
And for good reason.

Earlier this month Pinkett-Smith fired the previous director who had problems with the Study Tech curriculum devised by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard, according to a report on RadarOnline.com earlier this month.

[Kramer/AP]
The Smiths insist that neither they nor their school
are affiliated with Scientology.



The new director, Piano Foster, completed a Scientology Basic Study Manual course in 2005 and her name appears on an official Scientology list.

But the school, which runs from pre-kindergarten through grade six, is registered with the California state government as "non-religious."

While they’re close friends with the famous and famously Scientologist couple Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, Smith has denied in the past that he is a member of the church.

“I’ve talked to Tom about it. [There’s] lots of incredible, wonderful concepts but Jada and I don't necessarily believe in organized religion," Smith told the newswire World Entertainment News Network in 2006.

“I was raised in a Baptist household, and my grandmother would get up out of her casket [if I became a Scientologist]."

The Smith's charitable foundation gave $122,500 in 2008 to groups affiliated with the Church of Scientology. But they also donated $1.3 million to a variety of religious, civic and arts groups that year, including a Los Angeles mosque.

Pinkett-Smith told Ebony magazine earlier this year that NVLA was not affiliated with Scientology.

"All I can say is it is not a Scientology school. Now, if you don't trust me, and you are questioning my integrity, that is a whole different matter.

“That is straight evil to think I would bring families into that educational institution and then try to get them to convert into some religion.”
