District Scrambles to Ensure Human Rights Event Is Religion-Free - 2005-10-01
State and Los Angeles Unified School District officials have confronted Scientology before. Last year, the district issued a warning to campuses after more than a dozen schools used a drug prevention program that bases its ideas partly on Scientology research and teachings. In February, a state investigation concluded that the program, called Narconon, failed to "reflect accurate, widely accepted medical and scientific evidence."
In the latest instance, Shuttleworth agreed to remove the church's name from the event's promotional material and said she and church officials had never meant to conceal Scientology's involvement.
