Scientology's slick (and bogus) drug education program snares another school district - 2017-09-03
Rod Keller once again catches Scientology worming its way into unsuspecting classrooms and police departments with its sneaky front groups...
Pulaski County in central Missouri is establishing a drug education program in its public schools. The Waynesville Daily Guide reports that the program is "The Truth About Drugs," provided by the Foundation for a Drug-Free World. Law enforcement and school officials presenting it are unaware that the program is provided by the Church of Scientology, that there are errors in the materials, or that other schools have judged them unsuitable for use.
Pulaski County has about 50,000 residents, 15,000 of whom live in Fort Leonard Wood, a U.S. Army training base for engineers. There are six school districts, and at least four are teaching The Truth About Drugs this fall in middle and high school: Laquey, Dixon, Richland and Waynesville, which is the county seat.
