Magnolia Science Academy is without a doubt a Gulen Managed charter school
The Gulen Movement is fantastic at advertising, PR, and bestwowing fake honors on their students, politicians, local media and academia. The Parents4Magnolia blog is NOT American parents it is members of the Gulen Movement in damage control mode. Magnolia Science Academy, Pacific Technology School and Bay Area Technology is the name of their California schools. They are under several Gulen NGOs: Pacifica Institute, Willow Education, Magnolia Educaiton Foundation, Accord Institute, Bay Area Cultural Connection. Hizmet aka Gulen Movement will shamelessly act like satisifed American parents or students. They will lie, cajole, manipulate, bribe, blackmail, threaten, intimidate to get their way which is to expand the Gulen charter schools. If this doesn't work they play victim and cry "islamophobia". Beware of the Gulen propagandists and Gulen owned media outlets. DISCLAIMER: if you find some videos are disabled this is the work of the Gulen censorship which has filed fake copyright infringement complaints to Utube

|Vote gives LAUSD Teachers more say in charter schools|
LOS ANGELES -- Los Angeles Unified teachers have approved a new labor agreement with the school district that will give teachers wide-ranging decision-making power in running their schools.
United Teachers Los Angeles said Thursday that nearly 70 percent of its members voted in favor of the agreement. About 29 percent were opposed.
Under the pact, the district says it will not allow charter operators to take over low performing schools for the next three years, instead allowing teachers and administrators charter-like autonomy to write their own management plans for individual schools.
School reformers have criticized the plan for leaving innovative charters out of reform efforts, but UTLA President Warren Fletcher says the plan gives teachers equal footing to compete with charters, which have taken away hundreds of unionized teaching jobs.
Magnolia Science Academies in Los Angeles will not grow for the time being. They are projected to have one open in Milipitas, CA. However they have new applications pending in other parts of California under the name Pacific Technology Schools.
