Charter School Word of Caution

Do you have a child in a charter school?  Are you interested in sending your child to a charter school?   Before you do so, carefully investigate the ownership.  Dig deep, because all may not be as innocent as it appears.

Approximately 140 charter schools across the country are owned by Muhammad Fethullah Gülen.  According to an article in the May/June 2016 issue of Israel My Glory magazine, which quotes an article by WND’s (World Net Daily) Leo Hohmann, Gülen is a Turkish Islamist with a reported goal of bringing Sharia law to America through “civilizational jihad–a form of nonviolent jihad focused on infiltrating and overcoming Western nations over time through immigration and exploitation of the civil liberties available in those nations.”  Through these schools, he is collecting tens of millions in American tax dollars to fund his anti-American agenda.

By the way, the U.S. gave Gülen legal permanent resident status in 2008, and he is now eligible for citizenship.

A complete list of Gülen’s schools is available at tinyurl.com/7uxruyr.  Hohmann’s article is available at tinyurl.com/jtpjtza and a related article by Todd Starns of FOX News is available at tinyurl.com/zhulgfx.  I checked the list and three NC schools are on it:

So, if you have a student in a charter school, are considering enrolling your child in one, or know of someone who is, research the background throughly before enrolling.

Excessive teaching about the Islamic religion may be going on in your local non-charter public school as well.  You may have heard of an incident at La Plata [public] High School in Charles County, at which students were allegedly made to profess the Muslim statement of faith and memorize the Five Pillars of Islam. According to the list, La Plata is not one of  Gülen’s schools.  This is actually more disconcerting.  La Plata and the Maryland school system, are being sued in federal court regarding this practice.  The suit also alleges that the school teaches that “…the Islamic religion is a fact while Christianity and Judaism are just beliefs.”  Just one more reason to be alert to what your child is being taught at all levels of education!
