A few days ago, I posted about the New York Times' coverage of Turkish organizations using Texas charter schools to build the Muslim faith in that state. The New York Times' investigative piece is interesting because Mississippi is currently considering charter school legislation, and I believe we should make certain that our public school dollars don't get funneled into religious organizations under the guise of charter schools.
The NYT uncovers ties between the Texas charter schools and the Gulen Movement, which is supported by groups like the Raindrop Foundation. Really, you should just go read this earlier post and the stuff in the NYT piece linked there about Raindrop, the Turquoise Council, and the Institute of Interfaith Dialog.
Then go read this. Especially lines 46-52 and 62-64. Pure coincidence that the big Turkish reception was held the day the charter schools bill passed committee and the night before it passed the Senate?
