No fair! You're talking about the British schools.
Actually of all the Scientology schools I know of Greenfield's was the best.
I suspect at Greenfields, before the Church took it over, their were educated people running it.
But most American Scientology schools were started by moms who didn't want to send their kids to public schools (in the US public schools are what the British call private schools.)
And almost all discourage kids going to college.
The Anabaptist Jacques
The founder of Greenfields was a very talented and experienced Head Mistress. She gave a talk at London and was very impressive. Apparently
a teacher employed was found to be a paedophile and this was used to
kick her out, and give control to CO$. I believe she had provided most of the funding for the school and of course lost that.
it was prabably after that that it was OK for the CO$ to come and recruit.
One of my friends was taken to a recruit session for hours, parents frantic
on wondering where he was. He signed a contract and thought he'd leave his family the next day. There was of course looming the possibility of declares as the mother was dead against this and was prepared to be
VERY vocal. However he never went to SO and the issue died in this particular case.
