PEORIA -- Here are some good links to new stories questioning the Gulen Movement schools, one of which is Quest charter school in Peoria.
From the New York Times:
From the Atlanta, Ga. Journal Constitution:
Hat tip to Emerge Peoria blog, which initially posted the Atlanta newspaper pieces.
Here are the relevant questions:
1. Who is auditing Quest?
2. How is Quest spending its money?
3. What about that end-run around Illinois law, in which District 150 sold a school to the Peoria County Board which sold it to Quest? Was that even legal? Illinois law forbids a public school district to sell a school to a charter school.
4. What are the latest test scores at Quest? That is, is this grand experiment even working?
