Dear Instructor, Media or who it may concern,
There has been media and emails concerning information that has surfaced recently. Unfortunately the information portrayed is all true and I apologize for having to have to reveal it. A few of us in the ISR leadership team have to come clean and must blow the whistle. We can no longer follow the agenda given by Harvey, ISR and the so called leadership team. There has also been a rebellion by many ISR instructors that know these facts and demanding refunds and restitution. You are welcome to do as you please, it is your right.
The information that has surfaced recently has to do with revealing the truth and everything that ISR has been doing for years. It has come in the form of email, various flyers, internet, instructors themselves, and parents of students.
Harvey Barnett has claimed that he is a child psychologist
for decades which is false. The facts stating
The 100% safety record is also a lie and fraudulent. A news
paper article surfaced that quotes
There also have been numerous children that have died. There are others that faded into a coma or have become unconscious in ISR lessons. The instructors and parents were coerced into never revealing what happened including signing documents to maintain confidentiality. The media and everybody has been perpetuating this fraud and lie for decades not ever fully investigating the facts behind ISR. They see children swimming and never ever question what this organization is really about.
What you believe is proprietary or intellectual information
or techniques (swim-float-swim) have been around for years and long before
The swim float swim has been developed and perfected by others without the crying, and has been more efficient for decades. You have no idea that this exists because we have deliberately kept you in the dark. Unfortunately you paid the money for something that you could have readily gotten from someone else or through research at the public library.
We all maintain old crude techniques inflicting traumatic
crying to infants, but we have an explanation for it. You all know what that is,
There are other things of immoral and unethical nature that ISR has done for years but I will not write them here. It has already been revealed at this site thatís being circulated by many ISR instructors and parents of students. I saw literature at my church and it just made me feel like I wanted to curl up under a rock somewhere. You may do your own research at the site if you want. http://infantswimmingfraud.webs.com
All the money that you invested in your business has been lost. You may earn back some or most your investment, but you will always be paying for it. ISR has been psychologically controlling you and not allowing you to communicate with other instructors. Again, this is deliberate. The reason for this is total control of you and the rest of the instructors. We have been using cult controls on you forever but it is not to harm you. We just wanted more unconditional control so none of this information ever leaked out. I understand many of you have asked why you have to go to conference every year paying more money and losing time away from your families for really nothing. As you are aware, ISR canít think of any new things to teach you at Symposium. Symposium is really a refresher to keep you attached to the cult structure.
Harvey and the leadership team including myself have always harassed and threatened instructors that question these things. I canít hold my tongue any longer. I have to blow the whistle.
I fear retaliation if I reveal our identities. Just investigate the facts and you will see the truth. I wanted to tell you first before we create our smoke screen at Symposium. I am going to continue what I do for ISR and not reveal myself for fear of harassment and loss of family. I have to come clean and tell the truth. I am really a good person. I am sorry I have to reveal this to you, but I feel guilty about all the money that you have invested and lost, so I have to say something.
