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

Caprice Young of Gulen operated Magnolia Science Academy inserts foot in mouth

"The president of Turkey is busy shooting down Russian planes and smuggling arms to Syria. Doesn’t he have better things to do?” Young asked rhetorically. “The members of my staff are folks who value human rights.”  Caprice Young go fuck yourself, you are insulting Turkey and Erdogan while protecting the criminals that hired you for big money to straighten up their mess.  

 — A science and technology charter school with branches throughout California is delaying plans to start an academy in Oceanside while it focuses on expansion plans elsewhere in Southern California, officials said.
The decision by Orange County-based Magnolia Public Schools isn’t linked to controversy surrounding its financial record-keeping or to recent criticism by the Turkish government over whether the school’s Turkish-American founders support civil rights protections for Kurds in the southern part of that country. Gulen ordered Kurds to be killed several times and they were slaughtered back in December 2012.  Liars Kurds hate the Gulen Movement. 
The charter group had originally announced in mid-December that it had hoped to open a branch in Oceanside, but withdrew the petition in January to make fixes to the document. It’s now putting the charter petition on the back burner altogether until other projects are completed first.
“We’ll still go forward in Oceanside, but we are not in a big rush,” said Magnolia’s CEO Caprice Young. “We’ll step back and do it in a way that is done right at the right time.” Whether it’s done in 2017 or 2018, we definitely want to service Oceanside,” she said.
The proposed Magnolia Science Academy-Oceanside would eventually serve grades K-12 and emphasize science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM. The charter school had planned to open in August 2017 with about 180 students, according to its original application filed with Oceanside Unified School District. The company has faced challenges over its efforts to expand and over its bookkeeping. The Turkey matter is its most recent controversy.
Turkish leaders have hired a U.S.-based law firm to urge the state to further investigate Magnolia’s financial dealings. School officials said the move is political, because the school’s founders backed a petition drive seeking civil rights protections for embattled Kurds in southeast Turkey. Some of the school’s teachers are Turkish educators who are in the United States on visas. Liars Kurds hate Gulen Movement and burned their schools down.  
“It’s just baffling that the (prime minister) of Turkey is meddling in local schools in the United States,” said Young, a former president of the Los Angeles Unified School District’s board and the founder of the California Charter Schools Association, a powerful lobbying group with L.A. and Sacramento offices.  Dumb Bitch Erdogan isn't the Prime Minister he is the President of Turkey.  
“It’s frustrating and a distraction,” she said.
Critics have asserted that the Magnolia campuses have ties to a U.S.-based Turkish cleric, Fethullah Gulen, who lives in Pennsylvania.
An apparent power struggle between the followers of Gulen and those around Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has reached a new pitch of intensity.
“The president of Turkey is busy shooting down Russian planes and smuggling arms to Syria. Doesn’t he have better things to do?” Young asked rhetorically. “The members of my staff are folks who value human rights.”
Magnolia, which serves 3,790 students statewide, oversees a network of charter schools throughout California, including one in San Diego, at 6365 Lake Atlin Ave., as well as one in San Jose, eight in Los Angeles County and one in Orange County.
In San Diego County, Magnolia’s sixth- through eighth-grade science academy on the former campus of Cleveland Elementary School was sold last year to a Newport Beach-based real estate developer, Preface JCR Lake Atlin LLC, for $5.8 million. The developer plans to redevelop the 8.67-acre parcel into a single-family residential subdivision.
Magnolia is in the process of negotiating a move to San Diego Unified School District’s old De Anza school site, at 6575 Estrella Ave. It has plans to develop a new middle school, and is negotiating a lease on the De Anza property where it would pay a total of $1.2 million over the next five years, according to the school district.
A Magnolia elementary and high school also are under consideration near the De Anza School Young said.
Young was hired by the charter school group more than a year ago to strengthen Magnolia’s management, fix accounting and legal problems and create more transparency for the nonprofit. Young is doing a lousy job, we hear she is paid $600,000 to clean up the gulenists dirty diapers.
In recent years, multiple audits into the charter school group — including ones conducted by the California state auditor, Los Angeles Unified School District, the California School Finance Authority and others — found that the umbrella group that oversees the charter schools was in the red.
Young said that the Magnolia Educational and Research Foundation has fixed a majority of the accounting problems by hiring an outside vendor to run its financial affairs. It is on schedule to fix the remaining balance sheet issues by a May deadline.
Meanwhile, Standard & Poor’s upgraded the charter school’s credit rating last year to “stable” from “negative,” giving Magnolia room to borrow money more cheaply.
The state also is placing more confidence in Magnolia’s accounting as the school financing authority approved a $17.4 million loan to the charter school group to build a new facility in Santa Ana — expected to open this August. The school got this money under false pretenses and never disclosed they were a troubled organization.
The school wants to expand in Fremont and Anaheim, where it has fought to lift a moratorium on charter schools. There was no "Moratorium" the people in those towns didn't want Magnolia or Caprice Young.
And, lastly, Magnolia is bidding on a contract to run the 20th Street Elementary School in Los Angeles as a charter after parents there petitioned for a change in administration for the poorly performing public school. This will not happen.  
“Our major goal is to serve underserved  students and we want to do that in a way that is of the  highest quality,” Young said. “We do that in places where we are most wanted.” You were denied 7 applications no one wants you or your lying bastard Gulenists.
