Overfilled classrooms, underachieving students and “learning disorders” are today all too common. Teachers struggle with classroom management problems while principals ponder the correct levels of discipline to control unruly students.
At the same time, adults worry about holding their jobs as technology outpaces the skills they worked so hard to learn.
Such problems have generated libraries full of educational theories. But the problems persist.
Fundamental to all of this are three primary barriers that keep people from successfully learning a subject. Despite all that has been written on the subject of education, these barriers have only recently come to be broadly recognized as critically important in effective education.

The basic fact is that students fail to learn because no one ever taught them how to learn—that is, how to identify the barriers to learning and how to overcome those barriers.
Developed by American author and educator L. Ron Hubbard, Study Technology, or Study Tech, is not just another method of study. It allows a person to learn any subject successfully, empowering them to achieve the goals they have set in life for what they want to be and what they want to do.
Study Technology consists of tools and techniques teachers can use toimprove the learning rates of students. These same tools and techniques can be used by students themselves to improve their ability to understand and to use the materials they read and study. And it remains vital for continued learning as one leaves school and faces the challenges of life.
At Applied Scholastics, we define successful learning the same way we define proficiency. Someone who learns a subject successfully should be able to use that subject to accomplish something. They should be able to accomplish it quickly, without error and with good judgment. These are the ingredients for success in life—in any field of endeavor.
With Study Technology, a student’s learning issues and scholastic problems can be a thing of the past. If a student is already doing well, he or she can do even better.
Study Technology opens the door to learning and successful application for students of any age.
