In this address to a crowd of over 2,000 guests at the Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre International, Mr. David Miscavige covers the solutions to rising international illiteracy rates.
DAVID MISCAVIGE: “Then there’s education, because people can’t go free if they can’t acquire wisdom — not to mention all illiteracy costs in poverty and despair. But through the 1990s, Applied Scholastics has been turning the tide with LRH Study Tech in 289 centers world over. In South Africa, where more than two million students now employ LRH study tools. In China, where more than five thousand teachers have been trained to use those tools and yet another eighteen hundred in the Dominican Republic. Until, as of tonight, nearly thirty-three thousand teachers apply LRH Study Tech for the benefit of almost twenty million students.”
MORE INFORMATION ON THE APPLIED SCHOLASTICS PROGRAM:
Lack of an effective education is one of the greatest barriers to success and happiness faced by our children and, for that matter, any individual. To a substantial degree, educational failings generate many of the ills we face in our societies, from intolerance and racism to drugs, poverty and economic failure.
Based on L. Ron Hubbard's extensive technology, Applied Scholastics™ programs enable individuals to handle the literacy and education of the children and people in their communities.
Applied Scholastics International is a non-profit, public benefit organization formed in 1972 by educators from colleges, universities, and both public and private schools.
The mission of Applied Scholastics is to provide effective education services and materials that help people learn how to learn and thereby work effectively to achieve their goals and realize their full potential.
In countries throughout the world, from urban centers in Europe and America to the townships of South Africa, Applied Scholastics is helping both children and adults learn how to learn, utilizing methods that have proven to be effective at all levels of educational development. These methods, known as Study Technology, were developed by author and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard.
Applied ScholasticsTM educational programs utilize and teach Study Technology, producing routinely excellent results. It has been established repeatedly that these results can be replicated by students, parents, teachers and business trainers from a wide range of educational and cultural backgrounds.
Study Technology enables students to understand and apply what they have studied and to retain this ability throughout their lives.
