The Californer/10279298

LOS ANGELES - Californer -- Scientology Network's VOICES FOR HUMANITY, the weekly series presenting heroic change makers from a variety of faiths, cultures and nations working to uplift their communities, announces a new episode featuring the work of educator Jen Nickerson, premiering on May 8, 2024.

VOICES FOR HUMANITY airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Scientology Network.

Over 30 million adults in the US cannot read, write or do basic math above a third-grade level. Jen Nickerson is working to help stem the shockingly high levels of illiteracy and school drop-out rates with an innovative program that focuses on the fundamentals of studying, bringing new hope to students and their families.


Jen Nickerson traces her passion for educating back to her own childhood in Iowa City, Iowa. But as an adult, seeing the effects of a dysfunctional public school system—high illiteracy and drop-out rates correlating to high crime and incarceration rates—prompted her to seek a better teaching method. She found it in Applied Scholastics, an educational approach based on L. Ron Hubbard's Study Technology. Along with her colleagues at the Clearwater Community Learning Center in Clearwater, Florida, Jen helped establish a school specifically designed to reach out to struggling students from low-income families. To date, Jen Nickerson and her team have empowered over 10,000 students with Study Technology, proving the problems of illiteracy are a byproduct of a dysfunctional system and not a reflection of the learning abilities of the individual student.
