    "Schools told to counter extremism


    Ed Balls says schools have a "key role" in tackling extremism
    Schools are being given advice on how to prevent pupils becoming drawn to violent extremism and terrorism.
    Guidelines are being made available to primary and secondary schools in England to help them discuss the issues surrounding extremist views.
    Schools Secretary Ed Balls said schools could play a "key role" in getting young people to reject extremism.
    Schools should have a named teacher to whom pupils can report any concerns of grooming by extremist groups.
    Teachers should protect the well-being of pupils who may be vulnerable to being drawn to extremism, says the government's "Learning together to be safe" kit.

    Well done on picking this up!
    It might be worth while us making a standard letter and getting people to send it. We could also include an information pack?

    It's all very well giving information about the warning signs of extremism but perhaps the minister should also provide some balance. For example, how to get involved in legitimate protest and activism.

    I think the 3 points to emphasise are that:

    scientology is a clandestine organisation that is clearly proven as intending to gain power through non-democratic means (state hubbards written policy and information on operation snow white).

    scientology issues fatwas (i.e. fair game policy) on people that openly speak out against the organisation.

    include information on scientology front groups and recruitment techniques (specifically the ones that are targeted at young people: vulture ministers, say no to drugs, youth for human rights).

    Any more information than that would probably lose their attention.
