Message from the Editor: The Back to School Issue

It’s back-to-school time! This week’s issue covers humanism and education—from the importance of comprehensive sex education to the need for nonreligious Sunday Schools. Check out the wonderful work of the Secular Student Alliance as they prepare for a new school year. And just for fun, we sent our summer intern Chris Cotelesse on a mission to find out what really happens when you enter the Church of Scientology. Let us know what you think, and tell us what you want to see in future issues, by emailing us at
