What-Or Who-Is Behind TMSA?


Author(s):
Abstract:
A Greensboro charter school is looking to open a new campus in Raleigh and has many residents concerned. The future Triad Math and Science Academy (TMSA) is reported to have ties to Fetullah Gulen, a Turkish imam. Parents and community members are concerned with the amount of international teachers the school employs and the ability of them to educate and look after their children, and the school’s links to Gulen and Islam. The US departments of education, labor, and the FBI have been examining links between similar schools and their ties to Gulen. The State Board of Education will begin discussions next week on whether to allow TMSA to open the school.
