Re: “Hidden Agenda?

What I see as amusing is people defending the academics. The school has great teachers, which is why MANY parents, who have known about GULEN HAVE NOT COME forward. Parents realize that once the jeanie is out of the bottle it will have repurcussions on the school. Many parents know about this connection and are VERY concerned. Basically we have been lied to. If The Gulen movement is such a great thing, that all the Turkish teachers belong, then they should come forward and tell us. They have kept this a secret for years. Why? Because it's against the charter of the state, which the principal admits in the article. Concerned parents (and it's NOT just a few, it's MANY) haven't said anything because of the jobs of the american teachers and the staff. And the Turkish teachers too. They are good people who in some cases can be thought of as victims. The issue is the connection between all these schools, the non profit agencies (like Accord, Pacificia and many others) and the common denominator, which is the Gulen Movement. One on one teachers do admit they follow this movement and there is a connection. We are not the first community to deal with this. It's coming out in many communities across the country. Read the articles in the Salt Lake Tribune, where it has been highly publicized. Parents are taking notice. This has nothing to do with any of the teachers or academics. Wise up parents and stop being defensive. Do your research and follow the links.
