Petition Closed

This organization which operates 135 charter schools in the United States has been violating the civil rights of American teachers and administrators for the past eleven years by blatantly ignoring  federal age, nationality, and gender equal opportunity laws. Further, their practices have supplanted American jobs by bringing in H1-B visa holders instead of hiring qualified and available American teachers and administrators, and all the while using American tax dollars to do so. The American tax payers are not only losing jobs, but are also required to pay for H1-B visa fees  and in many instances graduate degrees for the foreign teachers and administrators.

With unemployment rates still at an all time high, let's ask our government officials why they are still allowing the influx of H1-B visa employees to take American jobs when the United States has a wealth of qualified and credentialed American teachers and administrators.

I just signed the following petition addressed to: The Department of Education, the Department of Labor, and Homeland Security.

----------------
Investigate the 130 US Gulen-operated charter schools.

This organization which operates 130 charter schoools in the United States is violating the civil rights of American teachers and administrators, and taking American jobs away by bringing in H1-B visa holders instead of hiring qualified and available American teachers and administrators, and all the while using American tax dollars to do so.

In addition to discriminating against American teachers and administrators, some of the administrators at these schools are now refusing to admit students with special education needs, which is a clear violation of IDEA laws.

Keep in mind all of these illegal acts are being funded with American state and federal tax dollars.
