I studied 12 years -from the first grade to the end of the High school, one of the schools, of the Gulen movement in Turkey.My school was shut down eventually after July 15th happened and later taken by the goverment officially changed its name "July 15th Martyrs" and reopened as a Public School.

As a person been there long time, i have neutural views from both parties claims for what is the matter and what really happened on July 15th Turkey.I agree claims from Turkish government that most of the people involved in July 15th are belonging Gulenist Movement.They were coordinated very well on July 15th and what matters them most importantly is what Gulen movement top senior members "Imams" require from them.Once you involved in these schools, you begin getting along well with them and at some point it always come to the matter to follow their ideology and "the hizmet" what really matters to them since practicing their life.Many people naturally could effect from their personal views and carry on their ideology and finally becoming one of them.This is their basic organizational structure and the main purpose in these charter schools throughout the World so i think you should only consider sending your kids to these charter schools under the obligation of the government of the United States.

Like i said, it will always eventualy come to a matter to be one of them or not.Once you are against their idealogy somehow that would be even worse-in Turkey things were really corrupted after people who follow with Gulen movement, due to several disagreements and being against the Turkish government continue making demands only for their best interest.When these demands were denied, they have gone as far as they can like to make an attempt to overthrow the Turkish government with well organizated coup attempt within the role many individual people including many highly ranked Turkish Army officials,many judges defense attorneys and many other along members, who follow up Gulen movement.

Finally as i see clearly, US government denies possible extradation of F. Gulen and all other members who continue practicing entire their process behind the all other facts working under Charter schools.I want to say i agree with US government not to consider it occasinally.I believe also that there are reliable evidences that Gulenist are behind this coup attempt.US government expect Turkish government neuturalise their home security after declaring the state of emergency to find out what really happened.Turkish government has to prevent these things are happened no matter who is behind these events.Most of people responsible for July 15th were promoted in the government by the act of Turkish President Erdogan.Their main responsibility is always to make home safe which they failed as July 15th happened. It`s also possible US government does not believe this coup attempt could be organized by F. Gulen himself an imam in self exile in Pennysylvania United States.

The other thing, US President Donald Trump cannot either extract a person or retain him residenship without the order of the State Court.There is a process within the Justice Department of a extraction of a person.The US President cannot decide to do so or not to.Pressurising the US government on this particular matter could not sustain a well partnership between Turkey and United States.It would be really annoying at these times.

Sorry if i bothered you making it too long and confusing.Somethings were not easy to explain what really happened in Turkey.I just wanted to explain all in my own views whether some people like or not.Please refer these matters once you still consider your children to send these schools.

Be careful where you send your kids to school. Big complaint with these charter schools is they hire Turkish teachers that are not certified and pay them much more than the certified US teachers, maybe they have to if the school is s taking part of those teachers pay. Teachers have also complained that grades are manipulated to make it look like the students are doing well. Also there is no lack of qualified US teachers. If you are even considering sending your kids to one of these charter schools, do lots of research, especially if your child is special needs. No they don't teach Islam in school but they do teach Islam on outings, they also post Islamic symbols in the classrooms.

AL.LAH knows better about everything of doings from everyone and everything. ALLAH will punish the unfair people, earlier or later noone can flee. It is better, the real enemy is exposing himself or more people will die because him and his unfair doings. I cant know that Gülen is alone or is the one, but if he isn't the enemy, then he can go to turkey. He has nothing to lose. But he scared because, maybe he hide some information, thats why he dont go to turkey back. He is either way not completely clean. If i would in his situation and im real muslim, then i would like to go turkey and take my punishment. because the punishment in this world is not so hard like the punishment after this life. This is one of the mercies of ALLAH, that whoever get his punishment in this world, maybe ALLAH will repays his sins for him in the next life. But if Gülen not seeing this, then the future will show him his fatality in not so nice kind

A family member went to a charter school in Manhattan and was honors and principal recognition to 6th Grade in regular public school. Because of boredom applied and won a seat STILL straight As on weekly progress report! READING above grade more structure but some kids who need help on Saturday and summer do not attend. There are no fees only uniform to be purchased and I heard a parent asked why the children has to wear belts? It is founded by a former teacher. The teachers are from a diverse backgrounds and universities. Graduates have access to ivy league schools as well.

Gulen is Armenian priest acting like a imam

Mr.Gulen sounds like a good man if what is being said about him is true.
Separation of church and state.....no religious indoctrination is allowed.

In all honesty, it is an enigma to me that unless Mr. Gulen is a cherry picking Muslim how he can read his Quran and Hadiths and not die of embarrassment.

Fethuallah Gulen is the man who will save America and the world. I love this man and his movement and I wish him the best of luck.

I wish Gulen's people would open schools in the Dominican Republic and all over Latin America. We need hizmet to save us from ourselves.

Zionist movement is more powerful in America!

The devil (Gulan) they first start with school to look innocent than they infiltrate government and all powerful position in America!

Having said that, Gulan is far from Islamic teaching and spreading Islam is not his goal..
