The largest charter school chain within the public school system in the United States is run by a secretive Islamic Imam called Fethullah Gulen. His charter school chain is getting tens of millions of dollars from the public for their schools and there are a growing number of examples of systemic corruption and siphoning off public funds into their financial empire. Sharon Higgins is a researcher and blogger from Oakland, California who became concerned about the growing use of charters to privatize education and began to expose them in her blog Http://chartershcoolscandals.blogspot.com. She discusses her investigation of the Gulen schools, how they operate and the threat they are to public education in the United States.
