DUNEDIN — "One Friday afternoon in December, leaders of a tax-funded elementary school called Life Force Arts and Technology Academy shepherded students into a Scientology church in Tampa's Ybor Square."
The Pinellas county school system has been trying to close the school which is under bankruptcy protection. Besides Scientology, the school also has a connection to the Nation of Islam.
Charter schools which have wandered down the path to religious instruction have been disciplined in the county in the past. Principals and other key staff were forced to resign.
Life Force Arts must have hidden its affiliation with Scientology and the Nation of Islam to get its charter approved.
This is an interesting story that AP has picked up.
