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.

YORBA LINDA – On Tuesday, January 13, 2015 the Placentia Yorba Linda Unified School District (PYLUSD) will become the first in California to require hands-on CPR training as part of 9th grade health class, a requirement for graduation. The curriculum change will be celebrated at the Tuesday evening school board meeting where board members will present the American Heart Association/American Stoke Association and Learn for Morgan, a local CPR-awareness organization, the district’s “You are the Advantage” award for successfully adding hands-on CPR and instruction to the district’s 9th grade health curriculum.
