Most charter schools are private for profit schools.. The ones that say they are public do so to get tax dollars-but they are run by boards that are paid out of those public funds. There are many articles available on line- please read them
Read them yourself, toots, and start with the NYS education site. Even someone like you can read what charter schools are, their classification as public and the funding that they receive on that site. If you want to argue about what they are, argue with the NYS Commissioner of Education. I' m sure he' d love to hear from a high brow like you... Lolol ok

Argue with MR.King- the man couldn't even answer questions about the common core! I attended the forum he held here and he was a joke. The audience got the best of him with questions on the specifics of the core. Don't go to nys education web page- just bring up info about charter schools and you will be enlightened.
NYS HAS TO SAY THEY ARE PUBLIC BECAUSE NYS VOTED TO FUND THEM.

What is a Charter School?
Charter schools are publicly funded and open to all students in New York State through a non-discriminatory admissions lottery. Each charter school is governed by a not-for-profit board of trustees which may include educators, community members, and leaders from the private sector. Charters have freedom to establish their own policies, design their own educational program, and manage their human and financial resources. Charter schools are accountable, through the terms of a five-year performance contract, for high student achievement.
Charter schools were established to:
Provide families with an increased number of high quality school choices;
Improve student achievement;
Increase learning opportunities for all students, with an emphasis on at-risk students;
Encourage use of innovative teaching methods/educational designs;
Create new professional opportunities for teachers, administrators, school staff;
Change from rule-based to performance based accountability
Enrolling your child in a Charter School
Any child eligible for admission to a traditional public school is eligible for admission to a charter public school. Admission to a charter school cannot be limited on the basis of disability, race, creed, gender, national origin, religion, ancestry, intellectual ability, measures of achievement or aptitude, or athletic ability. If the number of applicants exceeds the number of available seats, a random selection process, such as a lottery, must be used. However, charter schools do give preferences to “at risk” students, siblings of students already enrolled in the charter school, and students living in the charter school’s school district of location.
If you are interested in applying for admission to any charter school, you must contact the charter school directly to inquire about its application /enrollment timeline and process. Please look up our charter school directory page for the most up-to-date information on the location of charter schools, contact information, and grade levels served.

Concerned,

I have never heard of the Gulen Movement so I looked it up at Wikipedia and what I found was pretty innocuous.

I also looked up C.A.S.I.L.I.P.S. who seem to be where much of the opposition to the Gulen Charter Schools comes from.

I also looked up the founder of Gulen Movement and he appears to be a moderate Muslim, pro democracy, pro business and seems to have the right enemies in his home country of Turkey.

He appears to be a rather wealthy businessman.

I tried to search for the funding source for CASILIPS but I could not find them even on their own website. That leads me to believe that they would prefer to hide that funding information.

I may be wrong but I get the feeling that the funding source is probably money from the public school teacher's union.

Which of course leads me to think that you are probably working for that union.

Either way I learned something tonight so there's always that.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
