Its a known fact that every state where a Gulen operated charter school is there is layers of Gulen institutes and foundations. They work to promote Turkey and Azerbaijan, in local and national governmental offices. These Turkish groups operated by members of the Gulen Movement also operate to promote Turkish Culture via Turkish Classes, Festivals and state proclamations.
In California it is called Pacificia Institute and they all work under the Turkic American Alliance (TAA) In March 2014, MSA 2 students thought they were being taken to a Turkish Cultural Center to learn about Turkish Culture. Instead they went to the Pacifica Institute (their governmental lobbying group) and Ozkur Yildiz (Incredible Shrinking Turk) of the Turkic American Alliance (TAA) was there to give the kids lessons about Turkey. All of this at the expense of the American Taxpayer.
We have included a red arrow in the photos because the Turks were too lazy too take down the Pacifica Institute sign. http://www.pacificainstitute.org/
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.
