Horizon Science Academy in Bond Hill… employs seven foreign teachers, mostly from Turkey, brought to the U.S. on H-1B visas for jobs it says Ohio teachers are unqualified to fill.
Concept Schools, founded by followers of a Turkish Islamic cleric secluded in the Poconos, already is under federal and state scrutiny for possible irregularities in teacher licensing, testing and technology contracts.
An Enquirer investigation has found that Chicago-based Concept Schools, which runs Horizon and 17 other charter schools in Ohio, annually imports dozens of foreign teachers in numbers that far surpass any other school system in the state.
The Ohio Department of Education is weighing complaints from former Concept staffers that unlicensed, foreign teachers were used.
Ohio teachers, meanwhile, say plenty of qualified teachers are available for jobs being filled by the foreigners, especially since about 40,000 are still without teaching jobs because of the recession. [bold and red in original]
Is the fact that their property taxes are going, in many cases, directly into the pockets of for-profit entities, not into the traditional school budget coffer, not of some concern to them?
Is the fact that charter schools have no school boards that represent the voters of the entire municipality of no concern to them?
Is the fact that Communist Core Marxist curriculum, assessment and remediation of their children’s attitudes, values and beliefs will exist in their child’s charter school, and they won’t have the right to complain about “it” not of concern to them?
Is the fact that charter schools are being used to teach religion of no concern to them?
There used to be a prohibition against tax-funded public education promoting religious beliefs. Many state constitutions forbid tax money going to religious schools! Why is this unconstitutional charter school entity not being challenged in the courts?
What is it going to take for the hard-hit American taxpayer and/or parent to wake up and focus on the problem of tax-funded government schools with no elected boards (charter schools)… and, in addition, to wake up and understand that once the government funds any form of private eduction, including religious and home education, that this education entity in effect becomes “public”/“government” education (the kind of education one finds in Cuba, China, or any Socialist, Communist country)?
What is it going to take for Americans to realize that the internationalists, Neoconservatives, Leftists, corporations and their philanthropic agendas (such as Bill Gates), the Council on Foreign Relations, the U.S. Dept. of Education and the Carnegie Corporation “mafia” do NOT care about their children’s futures? They all support tax-funded school choice in order to implement the lifelong global workforce training agenda. This Communist workforce agenda cannot be implemented without tax-funded school choice.
