PostSubject: Charter schools use Turkish ties, visas to get teachers   Mon Oct 06, 2014 6:51 pm

Horizon Science Academy in Bond Hill has the usual classrooms, books and lessons to teach kids seeking an alternative to regular public and private schools.

The charter school also 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.

At least 474 foreign teachers, again mostly from Turkey, have arrived at Concept's Ohio schools between 2005 and 2013. The schools are collecting about $45 million in state funds annually to educate 6,600 children in kindergarten through high school

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.

Academically, Concept students perform no better or worse than children at the nearly 300 other charter schools in Ohio.

Ten of the Ohio Concept schools – more than half – received Ds on the state's most recent performance index, a measure of how many students passed key achievement tests.

We need to stop this abuse. It has gotten so bad English speaking Americans can hardly get a job in our own country. Enough is enough. Lets take care of what we got first, then if we can allow a FEW to come over and join us. Yes, JOIN us, not invade or take over us.

Come into the US under a visa and you get to stay here forever.

yep.

ohio alone is spending 45 million in tax payer cash to support that school. I think they need to close, it seems more like a scam to import muslims legally and get paid to do it. The whole thing reeks of wrong.

Students are coming on student visas, getting full scholarships, including room and board, then going back home without paying a penny.....

are we sure the are going home?

We have some messed up systems in so many places. They may have started out as good deeds, helpful to the world etc, but now it has added up and people from all over the world have taken advantage of our good nature laws and are sinking us.

Its time to fix some of these laws. t may make us look a little mean, but the consequence of not fixing them is the detriment of ALL Americans and our off spring.
