We, the undersigned, wish to raise our profound concern over the apparent lack of enforcement action by the State of California in response to the results of the 2015 audit of four Magnolia Schools, which discovered, among other alleged unlawful activities, self-dealing to affiliated contractors, non-transparent accounting and missing records for 69% of transactions, and the misappropriation of hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars for immigration lawyers to secure H1-B visa for teachers from Turkey.
As Magnolia has applications open for eight new charter schools in California totaling projected budgets of almost $48 million of taxpayer funds for each school, we believe that these alarming red flags merit scrutiny.
I have read the UCP Complaint against Magnolia Educational & Research Foundation, d.b.a. Magnolia Public Schools, and I am signing this petition to indicate that I adopt this complaint as my own. By signing, I am demanding the State of California and the California Department of Education to review this complaint and conduct a thorough, comprehensive investigation into Magnolia immediately.
