Gulen Concept Schools Management, a poor report card.

Slide presentation about Concept Schools

Presumably 10% of the school's money goes to Concept in Illinois.  That is the standard contract.  Why should Minnesota, Indiana etc.,  money go to Illinois?  Are Concept's services really so valuable?
2.  The status of Concept Schools members in Ohio is not that great.  5 schools were on Academic Watch in 2009/10, 1 in Academic Emergency. Shouldn't they show they can fix the Ohio schools before expanding?
3.  Concept failed to prove 501(c)3 status to Illinois
4.  Locals should ask about the connection of Concept to Concept Schools International, which is opening schools in the United Arab Emirates.  Is there a financial connection?  Could Minnesota money be going overseas to that company?
5.  Why would anyone in Minnesota, Indiana, etc., want governance to come from Illinois?  Don't they want local control?  How can parents and teachers communicate with the people who are really running the school when they are so far away?  And how will the people in Illinois stay in touch with what's happening in the school and what the needs are?
