As a prospective parent, I am searching schools in Orange County area for my kids and ran into a charter school ran by Magnolia Foundation. Although I am confused with different school names on their web sites (Magnolia Science Academies and Pacific Technology Schools) Magnolia’s STEM focus seems to be very attractive. I pursued my search deeper I found some alleged connections between Magnolia/Pacific Schools and “Gulen Charter Schools“. I was frustrated with inflation of information about “Gulen Charter School” which seems to be virtually established by some bloggers.
First, I did not get the bloggers point if they are promoting “Gulen Charter School” or attacking to Magnolia Schools. After reading a few articles it is obvious that there are really jealous people out there who are not happy with Magnolia’s schools. Ironically their level of attacks really convinced me that these schools are very successful and I decided to enroll one of my kids to Orange county site. If I were one of those bloggers I would start an online charter school to serve the community instead of wasting time to defame current successful schools and make connection to virtual “Gulen Charter Schools“.
As John F. Kennedy says “All of us do not have equal talent, but all of us should have an equal opportunity to develop our talent”. Yes we are all different but differences are far less than similarities. The elderly world has enough space for all of us. We should be all working for our youths and be more passionate about spreading JFK’s message.
