Subject: Three Arrested in Two Separate Weekend Online School Violence Threats

LOS ANGELES, February 16, 2016 – A formal complaint has been issued under the California Uniform Complaint Procedure (“UCP”) urging the California Department of Education to conduct a full investigation into the financial practices of the Magnolia Public Schools charter school network, which currently operates 11 active charter schools in California.
The UCP Complaint – brought by the law firm Amsterdam & Partners LLP, in conjunction with interested California taxpayers Dr. José Moreno and Tina Andres – notes that a 2015 audit conducted by the California State Auditor discovered widespread accounting impropriety and raised numerous other important questions about Magnolia’s financial practices. Notable among them is Magnolia’s connection to the global organization of charter schools and businesses headed by Turkish national Fethullah Gülen, a reclusive Islamic cleric who resides in Saylorsburg, Pennsylvania.

Operate Openly with Trust and Integrity
by Senator Bob Huff
The news that union organizers with the Orange County Labor Federation are working to deliberately misinform parents about the truth regarding California’s Parent Trigger law should come as no surprise. Those who support the concept of school choice and the supposedly “radical” idea that every California child deserves the best education we can give them have been fighting entrenched union interests since Governor Schwarzenegger signed the Open Enrollment Act into law.
The Open Enrollment Act was a cornerstone of President Obama’s ambitious “Race to the Top” education reform effort that swept the nation nearly eight years ago. The President’s goals for reforming our public education system, which former Senator Gloria Romero and I supported, was the implementation of educational policies like performance-based evaluations for teachers and principals, support for charter schools and turning low-performance schools into education powerhouses.

ANAHEIM EDUCATION LEADERS MOBILIZE AROUND CORREA’S CONGRESSIONAL BID
Anaheim Union High School District & Anaheim City School District Board Members Endorse Lou Correa in CA-46 Contest
SANTA ANA, CA— Formulating a wide-ranging alliance of support around his campaign to represent California’s 46th Congressional District seat, today former State Senator Lou Correa won numerous endorsements from some of the region’s most influential education leaders.
Those endorsing former State Senator Lou Correa for Congress today include:
- Anaheim Union High School District Board President Annemarie Randal-Trejo
- Anaheim Union High School District Board Member Al Jabbar
- Anaheim City School District Board of Education President Bob Gardner
- Anaheim City School District Board of Education Member Ryan Ruelas
The Anaheim Union High School District wants Anaheim to part with money from its own budget to supplement the millions the school district already spends. Giving extra money to the bureaucracy that runs public education, however, only entrenches the status quo, which hurts the disadvantaged by forcing them to attend failing schools.
The city should take this opportunity to engage with Anaheim parents, whose children attend failing schools, about ways the city can assist them directly to improve public education for their children. Continue reading
