Gulen charter schools: A recently flourishing myth that targets some public charter schools via disinformation. The term Gulen charter schools is coined by a group of bloggers aka the Goose Network.
Gulen Charter Schools is a hot discussion topic on a variety of blogs around the Web. Showing hardly any evidence, some websites try to convince parents as if there were a link between Fethullah Gulen and some charter schools in the US.
The following video on Gulen charter schools shows how informed (!) these people are on the so-called Gulen charter schools:

Gulen charter schools accusations vs. Parents' experience
On the Web, I came across some articles on Gulen charter schools, which I found at the beginning to be very interesting. But, as I read further, I found some contradictions, baseless claims and accusations. Some of these articles on Gulen charter schools were mentioning Magnolia Science Academy which I’ve heard from my friends.
I have some friends whose children attend to one of the Magnolia Science Academy charter schools in Los Angeles, which were also labeled as one of those so-called Gulen charter schools. So far, all the feedback I’ve heard and read about Magnolia charter schools are very positive. They are no different from other public schools, except that they have an extra emphasis on math, science, and technology, which is a very good opportunity for the students who want to improve themselves and get a better education.
My friends are very satisfied with the teachers and the service they offer at Magnolia. My kids are still young to go to school, but Magnolia Science Academy is definitely on the candidate list, as it will most likely be the best choice for my kids.
I have a daughter who graduated from MSA San Diego and my younger daughter started 6th grade at MSA this year. I am so amazed with the kind of transition I’ve seen in my younger daughter. My 6th grader changed from an irresponsible little kid into a responsible and hardworking young lady in only 3 months, thanks to her teachers’ hardwork and discipline. There are many activities I can just go and participate as a parent at the school. For sure, Magnolia is the best school my two daughters ever attended.
A big “Thank you!” to the founders and staff of Magnolia Science Academies for such a great experience.
