Developer of a Workable Educational Philosophy
L. Ron Hubbard was an American writer and philosopher who became interested in education as a young man teaching English in a native school in Guam during the 1920s.
Over the next forty years Mr. Hubbard continued his research into education, and by the early 1960’s, he saw fully that declining educational standards were having a profound effect on the learning abilities of people from all walks of life. His investigation of this decline, and research regarding the basic laws of education led to a revolutionary development in the field—a technology of study. His lectures on this work were recorded and formed the basis for a whole approach to teaching and learning referred to as Study Technology.
In an article written in 1950, Mr. Hubbard said:
“An educational program which begins with the child’s parents, progresses through kindergarten and grade school, through high school and into college and preserves at every step the individuality, the native ambitions, intelligence, abilities and dynamics of the individual, is the best bastion against not only mediocrity but against any and all enemies of mankind.”
Canyon View Academy owes a debt of gratitude to Mr. Hubbard, whose extensive writings on education have guided our work in education and provide fundamental guidelines and policy for the schools in their approach to teaching, learning and administration.
