I am not an expert on charter schools, but I do know something about the Gulen schools. This week, I was offered an invitation to the screening of a film called," Killing Ed", which focuses on the schools operated by a rather shadowy guy from Turkey named Fethullah Gulen. I was unable to attend, but the screening resulted in an article in today's Orange County Register.
Gulen, who resides in Pennsylvania in a mansion, is an opponent of the Turkish regime of Recep Tayyip Erdogan. He is alternately described as an Islamist or a "bridge builder", and is also the head of the Pacifica Institute, which hosted an event last January in Irvine, which I attended.
If I get more details on the screening from someone who attended, I will post them. Gulen schools or Magnolia schools; they bear watching.
