I would also like to add that $0.00 tax dollars were used to pay for OPTIONAL international trips! All participants pay for their own trips or they are paid through the student activity fund which again IS NOT funded with tax payor dollars. A few students won trips by their exemplary efforts in the Turkish Olympiad competition and are paid for by the organizers of the competition. This is a competition that FSA students taking Turkish as a foreign language participate in to reinforce their subject material.
Further, this so called audit report inaccurately depicts that 'customers' were taken to Turkey. The school does not have customers. The individuals tagged as 'customers' were students, parents, or teachers.
It is interesting that although Dr. Avossa KNOWS that no conflict of interest or self dealing exists or has ever existed that he continues to level this accusation publicly. Again I ask, "Where is the PROOF to substantiate this claim?"
Also FCSS lawyer, Hale, has stated to the media that FSA had plenty of time to respond to thier audit. I don' t see how that is possible since the media received it a full day before FSA did.
Everyone should go to www.fsamiddle.org
and click on State Petition on the left side. Go to Item 11 and view the answer and view the supporting documentation to see that FSA in no way impeded the FCS audit.
FSA has SOME Turkish or Turkish-American teachers and administrators. So what? They may or may not practice Islam. So what? Their personal beliefs and practices are no ones business provided they are not dissiminating them in the classroom or at school activities and they are not doing this. There has not been 1 allegation of this in 10 years! Just for the record more than 80% of the teachers at FSA are Americans!!!!!
Fetos sends his love from Allah to Fulton Science Academy. F. Gulen has prayed for you and added the terrible news about the audit to the F. Gulen web site. Gulen, as mentioned on "60 minutes" rarely leaves his compound in Poconos, PA where he is under self-imposed exile. As Bekir Aksoy explained to Lesley Stahl when she asked "if Gulen had visited his schools in his backyard Pennsylvania" Bekir replied "Mr. Gulen enjoys knowing of the fruits of his work" The school Lesley Stahl was speaking about was Truebright Science Academy which was DENIED their charter the same week Fulton Science Academy was for the same reasons: lying, lack of accountability, lack of transparency, and more.
HEre is the link to F. Gulen's website and his article about HIS Fulton Science Academy: http://www.fethullahgulen.org/press-room/news...
Dear Ms. Lassetter;
If you feel that Bank of America has lied, that the County and State Board of Education are unfair, or that the IAG forensic auditors were inaccurate. Why don't you and your Hizmet buddies file a complaint and a lawsuit to clear your name?
What are you willing to give up in discovery to prove that the fact based reports are all just conspiracy theories or wrong? What proof do you have that all of this is just inaccurate?
The fact is, it is all true. Besides, your school is now CLOSED as a public Charter School and will have to survive as a private school. I would suggest you change the name of the school and try to change the image. The PR people at http://www.bm.com
can help you they help their sister school Harmony Science Academy try to bury all of their lies and "secrets" that the Gulencis are sworn to protect. You have been had.
