Gulen Charter Schools - Madeline Zavodny - Jobs for US Natives
The U.S. Department of State on their "World Wide Fact Sheet" states that the United States has 195 schools in 136 countries in an effort to "demonstrate to foreign nationals the philosophy and methods of American education." Is it then so beyond our scope of reality that educators from other countries, including Turkey, would want to come to the U.S. to do the same thing? When did searching for the best source of education become something bad or ill-intended? I encourage everyone to go to www.conceptschoos.info where you will find the exact number of foreign teachers to American in all of Concept's managed charter schools. In fact, you will find that it is less than 10%.
While there is nothing wrong with being Turkish or Turkish American, it is important to know the real facts. And the fact is, Horizon charter schools are comprised of more qualified American teachers than any other race or nationality. Besides, our country was founded on the need to search for something better. Claiming that the schools are Turkish or Gulen charter schools are un-founded accusations, and I encourage everyone to read www.conceptschools.info from top to bottom to get the real story.
