Principal Grace Snipper of Sherman Oaks elementary school in California cancels an assembly by the environmental group Cry Out because of the group's ties to the Church of Scientology. The proposed presentation will be reviewed by officials of the Los Angeles Unified School District to determine if there are any church/state issues.

According to Principal Snipper:

"I don't know the first thing about the Church of Scientology, but it would be a waste of time to have people worrying about whether or not we are trying to expound the teachings of Scientology.

We can teach environmental lessons in other ways."

School board member Roberta Weintraub agrees with the decision:

"I don't think it is appropriate for any kind of church or organization like this to be on campus, particularly if they are coming under the guise of something else."
