Tucked within this report of Tom Cruise's bizarre Scientology adventures is a note about a fellow with an interesting mission:
Sunday night, Tom Cruise rewarded high-ranking members of the Church of Scientology with tickets to a private screening of his new movie, "Lions for Lambs." ...
Cruise's other Scientology guests were Randy Hepner, a jet pilot, and John Danielson, partner with former Bush Department of Education Secretary Rod Paige in Chartwell Education.
In 2005, Danielson, according to published reports, tried to push Applied Scholastics, a Scientology education program, in the St. Louis public school system.
Apparently Applied Scholastics moves around the country trying to inject its curriculum into ailing school districts. Surprisingly, St. Louis' school administrators in 2005 were sharp enough to sort it out.
