Type: Press
Source: L.A. Weekly (California)
As reported in the Weekly a few weeks back ("The Learning Cure" by Sara Catania, November 14-20), the folks at Scientology-affiliated textbook publisher Applied Scholastics think pretty highly of their L. Ron Hubbard-inspired pedagogy. In their push to qualify a series of five Applied Scholastics texts for public school use statewide, the company has touted the books' ability to help students think, speak and write for themselves. It seems odd, then, that the honchos at Applied Scholastics apparently don't trust their ...

In fact, the only reason a person gives up studying or becomes confused or unable to learn is because that person went past a word that was misunderstood.

Rena Weinberg's column ("Education Is the Real Issue," Aug. 3) about L. Ron Hubbard's textbooks had a serious error.

During the past year, Bridge Publications has submitted proposed revisions to address the legal compliance concerns.

* Robert A. Jones' column, "Saved by a Rumor" (July 27) was filled with generalities, slurs (including one that equates the religion of Scientology with colonics) and inferences that the Church of Scientology somehow attempted to sneakily get some "gambit" past the Board of Education in an attempt to "catechize its students." It was also inaccurate in the extreme. The fact of the matter is that L. Ron Hubbard wrote prodigiously in numerous fields. His books on the subject of ...
