Threads like this give me hope, and depress the hell out of me at the same time.
We MUST keep trying!!! But please don't be so naive to think it hasn't been tried before. Many people have tried, in nd out side of the cult. Google scientology child abuse, scientology schools, sea Org kids, etc...ask me something specific, like "What about the Scientology schools"? and then I can give you a list and then you can google or write your state board for info on accreditation. There is so much info already on line, please look:

[quote]Scientology/scientologists v. Times Publishing Company
District Court of Appeal of Florida - Sept. 1992
On September 20, 1991, seven deputies of the Pinellas County Sheriff's
Office Youth Services Education Division were invited to the Scientology
Cadet School to give a puppet show. Upon arrival they noted conditions
indicating that the elementary school children were being neglected or
Later an H.R.S. (Health and Rehabilitative Services) "inspection of school
premises had uncovered no basis to believe the children were being abused
or neglected" (small wonder) and the Sheriff of Pinellas County, Florida,
was not allowed to accommodate the public records request of the SP Times.

Civil Case #91-18290-CI was fascinating. I'm really interested in seeing
what's in the sealed portion of its files. Judging from the unsealed
parts, they contain one or more reports from the HRS (Health and
Rehabilitative Services) concerning child abuse and/or neglect at the
Scientology Cadet School. There was an HRS inspection in October 1991,
based on information from the observations of seven Deputy Sheriffs who
had been at the school earlier to perform a puppet show.
(One of the Scientology lawyers pointed out to the judge that these shows
were normally performed by only two Deputies, rather than the seven who
were there that day. While two of them performed the show, the other five
apparently had a look around, and what they saw was deemed by the HRS to
be sufficient cause for an inspection.)
At least two reports were produced from the HRS inspection, and on 16
October 1991, Scientology lawyers from the firm of Johnson and Johnson
moved that the documents be sealed because, among other things, they
contained the names of minor children. Prior to their motion, however, the
Sheriff's Department had shown those reports to at least one newspaper.
(So far, the details of the HRS reports are still unknown to me.)
