Gulen Movement leases former Catholic School to convert into new expanded Young Scholars of McKeesport




2nd charter school approved for McKeesport



Cindy Shegan Keeley | Trib Total Media
The Byzantine Catholic Archeparchy of Pittsburgh has worked out a multi-year lease of the old St. Nicholas school building in downtown McKeesport to Young Scholars of McKeesport Charter School.

Saturday, July 18, 2015, 1:16 a.m.

Despite the best efforts of McKeesport Area School District, a second charter school was approved to open in the city this fall.
Young Scholars of McKeesport Charter School chief operation officer Kamil Toprak said Commonwealth Court has affirmed the Charter School Appeal Board decision in favor of Young Scholars.
“This means there is no impediment to us opening in the fall,” Toprak said. “We are projecting to enroll 140 students for 2015-16.”
The district did not say whether an appeal would be made to the state Supreme Court.
“We are aware of the various stages of this process and we continue to monitor it,” district spokeswoman Kristen Davis said. “While this unfolds, we remain concerned about where this school is intending to open its doors.”
Toprak said Young Scholars will utilize the former St. Nicholas school building at 413 Shaw Ave.
“We are starting the paint, new flooring and so forth in the building soon to be completed,” Toprak said.
Young Scholarsis scheduled to open Sept. 8 with 12 teachers, as well as aides and an administrator.
“Teachers are already hired,” Toprak said. “Teacher in-service training will start four weeks prior to (the) school opening.”
He said full enrollment is expected by midweek, a month and a half ahead of an Aug. 31 deadline.
“Our classroom size is capped at 20 students,” Toprak said. “We will enroll 40 students in our full-day kindergarten classes, 40 students in first grade, 20 students in second grade, 20 (in) third grade and 20 (in) fourth grade.”
Young Scholars plans to add another grade every other year until McKeesport has a K-8 school. Registration included applications online at the ysmcs.org website. Young Scholars charter schools operate in Baldwin and State College. In McKeesport, Toprak's operation is leasing the St. Nicholas school building, belonging to the Byzantine Catholic Archeparchy or archdiocese of Pittsburgh.
“It is simply a straightforward lease that has a defined term (of) several years with an option to renew,” said Canonsburg attorney Cathy A. Chromulak, a member of the archdiocesan finance council.
She said negotiations regarding the lease began in earnest in the spring.
“I looked to their track record,” Chromulak said. “This is a group that seems to have had success in the Baldwin area (and) to my mind, that was a hopeful indicator.”
Commonwealth Court President Judge Dan Pellegrini issued his ruling for Young Scholars on Monday, while rejecting the school district's request for a stay.
Pellegrini considered the case on June 26 along with Judge P. Kevin Brobson and Senior Judge James G. Colins.
“It will always be our first priority to educate our students within the communities in which they reside and further the strong ties that our district has with all of the stakeholders involved in educating our children,” Davis said. “We believe that McKeesport Area School District is the best choice when it comes to educating our youth and providing them the best future.”
Tuesday's visit by Pennsylvania Secretary of Education Pedro A. Rivera was a chance for the district to express concerns — and tout success — in dealing with charter schools.
Superintendent Rula Skezas told the secretary that Brie Adams, district coordinator of student services, grants and outside funding, persuaded 91 cyber and charter school students to transfer back into McKeesport Area's public system.
“She works on building relationships,” Skezas said. “We have an easy product to sell.”
“She acts on every lead,” school board member Terri Kisan said. “We get them to open the door.”
At that meeting the district made clear that it made its peace with another charter school, Propel McKeesport.
“We were very opposed,” Skezas recalled. “Although I'd rather have those kids come here, we have a much more positive dialogue with them.”
On Aug. 22, 2005, Propel McKeesport held its first classes in the St. Nicholas building.
“They were a good tenant,” Chromulak said. “We were happy to have them.”
On Oct. 29, 2007, Propel cut the ribbon after moving into the former St. Mary's school along Versailles Avenue.
Propel's spokeswoman had no comment regarding Young Scholars, focusing instead on Propel's own offerings.
“Propel Schools provides outstanding academic and enrichment programs for our students,” Maura DeRiggi said. “We feel that families should have the opportunity to choose a high-performing, proven environment for their students, in their neighborhoods.”
McKeesport Mayor and former McKeesport Area School District teacher Michael Cherepko said he is distraught to see a second charter school in the district.
Cherepko said Propel displays good citizenship in McKeesport, but he doesn't think the city's school district deserves the burden of a second charter school.
“Both of my children are enrolled in McKeesport Area schools, and they are getting an education that is second to none,” the mayor said. “When it comes to private schools, I understand that there are people who believe in school choice. I, however, believe that parents who choose to put their children in an alternative school setting should do this at their own expense, not the expense of district taxpayers.”
As charter schools, Propel and Young Scholars are considered public schools and by state mandate get funding from the public districts.

Gulen Charter Schools supported by the American government says President Erdogan

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan stated that the United States fosters the Gülen Movement through its schools which operate in the country.
In an interview broadcast live on the private ATV& A Haber television networks late Thursday night, Erdoğan stated that the Gülen Movement operates over 160 charter schools in the U.S. which receive state funding.
“Through these schools, the U.S. supports the Gülen Movement” said Erdoğan, who added that US support given to charter schools strengthens the movement.
With regards to how Turkey was dealing with the Gülen Movement and its network of schools, Erdoğan said that the U.S.-based Fethullah Gülen, had “ran away” to the U.S. in 1999, who then established between 160 and 170 schools on U.S. soil.
The president said that the so-called Gülen Movement was earning huge sums of money through these networks of schools.
“The key point in [winning the] battle with them was the prep schools,” Erdoğan said. “They earned around a billion Turkish liras [around $386 million] from such prep schools. We have shut them down and it was handled,” he added.
The Turkish government accuses the Gülen Movement of infiltrating key institutions, including police, judiciary and bureaucracy inside Turkey.
A party-based new presidential system will make Turkey stronger, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has said.
“When I was competing for the presidency, I suggested that the party-member system should be brought together with a [new] constitution. This will make Turkey stronger,” he said.
Erdoğan gave examples of Russia, France and the U.S., where, he said, such a system worked well and rejected suggestions that democracy would suffer if presidents were political party-members.
“The problem in Turkey is rooted in this party-member, no-party-membership issue,” he said. “The countries which have party based member presidents can decide quickly on implementations and punishments,” he added.
“Being a president does not abolish being a politician,” he said, adding: “We have a political approach. I have an equal distance to every party.”
The Turkish president also noted that during the 2011 elections, the ruling Justice and Development (AK Party) bagged around 50 percent votes, while the presidential elections that he won saw the support of around 52 percent votes.
“This difference shows that I got votes from some other parties as well,” he said.
This is not the first time Erdoğan has sought support for replacing the current parliamentary form of democracy with a new presidential system; he has made the same call in many of his recent speeches across Turkey and abroad.
When asked whether he was being “too tough” in his public speeches, Erdoğan said: “My people get me in these speeches…This is Tayyip Erdoğan’s way of talk.”
About the “reconciliation process” with the outlawed PKK that is aimed at finding an end to the banned organization’s 40-year terrorist campaign against Turkey, Erdoğan said: “We are obliged to provide security of life and goods [to all] in this country. We will do whatever it needs to be done [to achieve that], no matter what. Our army and security forces will not give any credit to be in turmoil like this.”
Erdoğan also drew parallels between the PKK with the pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democracy Party, or the HDP. “If there are no sanctions [on HDP] right now, [then it must be understood that] it is for the sake of the reconciliation process,” he said.
The president also revealed that some privileges had been granted to the jailed PKK leader Abdullah Öcalan. He said that Öcalan had been given companionship of convicts “because he was lonely” in the İmrali Island, where he was being held.
“[Such measures] were all messages to our Kurdish people,” Erdoğan said. “To erase all the lies and to show them what is actually being done for the reconciliation process,” he added.
The “reconciliation process” began in 2013 aims to end the decades-old conflict with the PKK, which has claimed the lives of more than 40,000 people in Turkey.
About Turkey’s relations with the regional Iraqi government in Irbil and the central government in Baghdad, Erdoğan said that if Iraq decided in the future to split up with its federal structure then “it is their problem”.
He said that at the moment relations between Turkey and Northern Iraq were progressing well. “[However,] the Baghdad government and Northern Iraq administration are not getting along well because they [Irbil] cannot even get their constitutional rights.”
Relations between the central government in Baghdad and the Kurdish regional government in Irbil have seen many ups and downs. The bone of contention is Irbil’s demand for full payment of oil taken out from fields under its control.

Gulen private school Putnam Academy of Science to close

WFSB 3 Connecticut PUTNAM, CT (WFSB) - Faculty and students at a private academy are in shock after the trustees of the Putnam Science Academy decide to close the acclaimed school temporarily. The school needs millions of dollars to upgrade the aging infrastructure and to build a new dorm, so they've decided to close for two years. A spring shocker for many of the 115 students who attend the privately run, Putnam Science Academy. After a successful 12-year climb of academic and athletic accomplishments, the school will temporarily close in May for two years. Its board of trustees said they need the time to raise money and make necessary renovations. "We didn't know this was coming. I wanted to continue my 4 years here," Bilal Aksoi, who is a sophomore at Putnam Science Academy, said. On Friday, trustees of the Wellspring Cultural and Educational Foundation notified all the students, parents and faculty with a letter explaining their plans. "Our current facilities are not meeting improved demands and this has been one of the major challenges in our student recruitment and satisfaction," the letter stated. Basketball coach Tom Espinosa led the school's Mustangs team to be in the top 10 nationally. Now he has a new challenge. "We'll see what happens. I got some options out there you know. I gotta think what I want to do," Espinosa said. Principal Giray Gebes gave Eyewitness News a tour of the campus, which was originally the Putnam Catholic Academy. The building, according to Gebes, is showing its age. The science lab needs work as does the infrastructure of the 52-year-old building. Besides that, they need improved dorms for the national and international students living there, many of Turkish decent. "Our students at the moment are living in a dorm five to six learns are living in the same room which is not good," Gebes said. Even seniors who are graduating in May want to start the fundraising campaign now so the school can reopen again. "On paper its temporary. But you know like lots of things, we'll get there, we'll get there two years, oh we're going to need another year to rebuild until everyone forgets," student government president Hacibey Catalbasoglu said. "I think if we put in enough effort going through donations and charity funds foundations, I think we could find the money to keep the school alive," Burak Eraslan, who is a senior at Putnam Science Academy, said. May 29 is the last day of school, the students have started their own fund drive on GoFundMe.com. To donate, click here.

Gulen Albuquerque School of Excellence New Mexico - racial slurs


Gulen Albuquerque School of Excellence Racial Slurs from Gulen Fraud on Vimeo.
ALBUQUERQUE) – Offensive behavior in an Albuquerque classroom has a parent fuming after he says his black son was called the “N” word over and over again and a school official knew about the incident but didn’t call him. The entire incident was recorded on camera by the student making the offensive remarks inside a classroom at the Albuquerque School of Excellence, a charter school. School officials said he is a middle school student.

The entire video, which lasted 46 seconds long, was filled with racist remarks. One parent said the remarks would soon get personal. “Look at that organic n***** right there. That is an organic n******. That n***** is organic. Look at that organic n*****. That’s an organic n*****, yes he is,” the student said. The video was uploaded to social media in January. A parent of another student in the classroom saw it and reported it to a school official in February. However, the parent of the boy who appeared to be targeted in the video didn’t hear about it until this week. Terrence said it wasn’t school officials that called him. Instead, he had to hear about from the parent who reported the incident and he watched the video Monday night. “We were shocked, we could not believe what we saw,” Terrence said. School officials said the students all said they were goofing off and not one said it was bullying. They said the student behind the camera was disciplined and his parents were called. However, Dean of Elementary Krisiti Del Curto said there was never made any contact with the other parents. “The parents were not called because it was not seen as a bullying incident,” Del Curto said. Terrence said it was bullying and this is what his son told him. “He literally said, ‘I wanted to pretend like it didn’t happen. I didn’t know what to say, how to act, or what to do,’ ” Terrence said. Terrence said he’s most upset that school officials did not call him. He said he thinks this could have been a good teaching opportunity.

The school would not elaborate on the discipline the student faced. However, they did say that if a situation like this arises again, they will call the parents of all children involved immediately. School officials said an assistant principal took the report in February. However, the principal said he didn’t see the video until this week. School officials say initially it was not considered bullying, but after an interview with KRQE, they said it was. Del Curto said the teacher in the classroom did not hear the racist remarks. The school said they do have anti-bullying assemblies for students and staff.

Coral Science Academy in Henderson, Nevada (Las Vegas) looks to expand despite complaints from neighbors

http://www.jrn.com/ktnv/news/you-ask-we-investigate/Neighbors-voice-concerns-over-plans-for-expanded-charter-school-292786751.html If you are in the Las Vegas, NV area call the Board of Education and voice your concern about the "so called" waiting list and the ties to the Gulen Movement.
In 2013 in the usual "Gulen" con game they infiltrated the local FBI office and the Prinicipal got an award. Rest assured the FBI is watching them from the inside as well as the outside.
HERE THE GULEN MOVEMENT IS WITH HARRY REID THEY HAVE BEEN LOADING MONEY INTO HIS POCKETS FOR OVER 3 YEARS. KEMAL OKSUZ THE FAMOUS GULENIST IS IN THE PHOTO MEANWHILE IN THEIR RENO, NEVADA CAMPUS THEY ARE LOOKING TO MOVE THE HIGH SCHOOL TO A STATE OF THE ART FACILITY. MAYBE THE BRIBES TO HARRY REID ARE PAYING OFF. http://www.ktvn.com/story/28099297/local-charter-school-expanding-into-old-bank-building The Coral Academy of Science is making plans to move its high school students to a new facility in Reno. The expansion is aimed at providing more opportunities for students in the science industry. Right now there are more than 400 students on the waiting list to get into the Coral Academy of Science schools. Administrators say by expanding into a new building, the STEM high school could open up many more doors for kids here, and could improve our workforce. The new high school will be expanding into the former Mutual of Omaha Bank along Neil Road. Executive Director Feyzi Tandogan says right now construction is being done to put in several high tech labs. “State of the art biology lab, state of the art chemistry lab, state of the art physics lab and computer lab." Other lab departments include a technology and engineering room, along with 15 additional AP classes. The price tag for the 5 star school is more than $1.3 million. Teachers say it's going to help prepare students for our growing tech workforce. "The workforce today demands people that are problem solvers and people that are equipped to use technology and things like that,” said Andrew Highison. We're also told the school is working closely with tech leaders, including reaching out to Tesla to find out what kids need to do to be ready for jobs in the industry. "It's going to be a good project for high school students and Tesla is going to be happy because of the Coral Academy of Science High School,” said Tandogan. We talked to Kripash, Lillian and Neha, three students who currently attend Coral Academy. They are part of the high school robotics team and have competed on the state level. They told Channel 2 News, with the opening of a new high school in the horizon, they want to take their work to the next level. "We're going to have a lot more time to work on the robot at school and more equipment to do so,” said Lillian McIntyre. Kripash Shrestha says he's optimistic the team will also do better in training and technology to get them ready for competitions. "I think next, we will win state championship and we'll go to Super Regional's and maybe qualify for Worlds,” said Shrestha. Classes at the new high school will serve 300 high school students next year, increasing to 400 the following year. Coral Academy of Science started opened up in 2000 with only about 40 students and have expanded a lot since then. Right now there are around 970 students who attend the elementary, middle and high schools. Since a new high school is opening up, there will be a shift of students in the other schools, which will open up more spots in all grade levels up to 1,400 students. Construction is expected to be done by mid-June and the new high school is slated to open up August 10th, 2015.
