COLUMBUS, Ohio – Accusations are being leveled against charter schools, which could include some in Ohio .
The group Progress Ohio points to information uncovered by the whistleblower website WikiLeaks, alleging Turkish nationals may be using the schools as a cover to get into this country.
The schools are operated by Horizon Science Academy, which has three schools in Columbus.
Inside the walls of Horizon Science Academy, leaders tout an education rich in math, science, and technology. It’s an education that some say the teachers aren’t providing.
“They’re not teaching – they are showing movies. Their language isn’t up to par, those type of things,” said Brian Rothenberg, Executive Director of Progress Ohio.
Rothenberg, from the liberal advocacy group Progress Ohio, is referring to excerpts of information the whistle blowing website WikiLeaks claim its obtained.
