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

Many parents are trying to ask if this is legal? The answer is it is LEGAL but highly unethical. They are a public school as all charters are. Do not give them a dime of your money. Starve the bastards out!

Their letter cites "Financial difficulties" also their November 2012 board minutes reflect a severe cash flow problem of Magnolia Public Schools. Of course, they blame budget cuts. I guess hiring Turks who don't speak English to teach isn't paying off for them.
also tweeks the charter application as they go

SANTA CLARA -- Despite concerns about its finances, Magnolia Science Academy won a renewal of its charter to continue operating.
On Wednesday the Santa Clara County Board of Education granted a five-year extension for the public charter, which has more than 500 students in grades 6 though 9.
The school, located in Santa Clara, has had a negative cash flow, poor fiscal accounting and a problem with internal controls, according to Micaela Ochoa, chief business officer for the Santa Clara County Office of Education, which oversees the charter. Before cementing an agreement with the county office, the school will have to get its fiscal house in order, the county school board ordered. But on academic issues, the board complimented the school, which stresses science and math.
About 30 parents, teachers and children spoke to the board in praise of Magnolia's teaching and programs.
The county board voted 5 to 1, with trustee Anna Song dissenting, to extend the charter. Trustee Darcie Green abstained.
The school is one of 12 in the state run by the Magnolia Educational & Research Foundation.
