* Rena Weinberg’s column (“Education Is the Real Issue,” Aug. 3) about L. Ron Hubbard’s textbooks had a serious error. The materials which Weinberg refers to were reviewed in July 1996 and did not pass legal compliance. Therefore the books should not be in use in any California public school.
During the past year, Bridge Publications has submitted proposed revisions to address the legal compliance concerns. However, until completely corrected versions of the books are reviewed, there is no final consideration for approval. We have not received corrected published materials. The materials currently for sale are not approved for legal compliance.
