'STOCKPORT EXPRESS' WOULD LIKE TO HEAR FROM YOU

Postby Justice » Tue Feb 28, 2006 10:46 am

On the 22nd February 2006 the Stcockport Express Newspaper ran a story on the new branch of St. James Independent Schools which has just opened in Heaton Norris from which I quote:

The fledgling primary school is attempting to establish itself in Stockport, but concerns have been raised over the school?s links with an organisation
called the School of Economic Science (SES).

The SES was subject of an expos? book in 1985 called Secret Cult. Written by investigate journalists Peter Hounam and Andrew Hogg, it claimed the organisation was secretive and destructive.


Another passage in the same article read:

However, cult watchdog FAIR (Family, Action, Information, Resource) has cast doubt over whether the organisation has changed.

FAIR secretary Audrey Chaytor said: "We have recently received calls from parents concerned about the school. The SES has never published anything to defend that book [Secret Cult]. Since the writing of the book the SES has kept a low profile and there is no reason to think they have changed."


The Stockport Express is interested in hearing from anyone who has concerns about the activities of the School of Economic Science and invites them to contact them at:

Yes I had already read that - 'Sparks' posted the link a few days ago. I was just wondering if you had actually contacted them yourself, and if so what was the response. Or are you simply the messenger?

No, I'm not the messenger, but if you want to discuss it with them I suggest you give them a call.
