Fulton Science Academy Parent Thanks Governing Board

With two children in the school, this parent thanks them for their hundreds of unpaid hours given to the school.

At a time of great adversity and challenge I would like to thank the FSA MS Governing Board from my heart for the heroic efforts you have put forward for our community, for our school, and our children.

I would like to thank you for your time and the hundreds of unpaid hours you have given selflessly to ensure that our children can continue to receive the best possible education. 

I would like to thank-you for your dedication, the sleepless nights, and willingness to do what it takes to keep our school open. 

I would like to thank you for your energy as you have given your all to make the school a success.

I would like to thank-you for your convictions and staying the course when surrender would have been easier. 

I would like to thank-you for your kindness and love; for you have done this not for personal gain but for our most precious asset – our children. 

I would like to thank-you for being the leaders that are needed for you have shown us all what makes America great --- leadership and strong moral courage in the face of impossible odds and great personal risk.

Many do not know of the challenges that the Governing Board has faced:  

The untold volunteer hours, the meals and family time missed, the holidays given up and vacations cut short to write and deliver on time the thousands of pages of documents required to respond to an unprecedented level of questions from government officials, educational bureaucrats, and the press. 

The pain you all felt when  being degraded and maligned by educational bureaucrats who believe they are superior to you, the FSA Governing Board, because for some reason Americans who are of German, Hispanic, Scottish, and Turkish heritage are inferior. 

They do not know of the endless investigations that have been conducted at the request of educational bureaucrats that are intent on finding something to hang the Governing Board because the educational bureaucrats believe that they have the right to use intimidation as a tool to get their way. 

The tears shed when government officials, educational bureaucrats, and the press have chosen to malign the school with vicious unsubstantiated statements designed to destroy your reputation and that of the school.  

Many do not know of the self-doubt that the governing board members have felt during the darkest hours when they felt abandoned and attacked from all sides by nameless, faceless educational bureaucrats  that wish to close this school and others like it because FSA has done what no other public school in the county has done --- delivered educational excellence at a lower cost.  

To all of you on the FSA Middle School Governing Board I wish to thank-you for showing the courage, strength of character, moral conviction, and love to do what is right and exemplifying what has always been the American way – to stand up to injustice, to stand for what is right and for giving selflessly to help others especially our children.

I hope that with the grace of God and the help of others that this will come to a successful conclusion and no matter what the outcome is I wanted you say thank-you for being who you are and for the dedication and love that you have shown our community, school and all of our children.

Tom Deeb appears on Topix talking about this closed school Fulton Science Academy and the name of his country he e mails from show up as Azerbaijan. He is not American and is part of the Turkic controlled Gulen Movement (although majority of Azerbaijanis want Gulen out of their country) http://www.gulenschoolsworldwide.blogspot.com Make sure you watch "60 minutes" this Sunday May 13, 2012 they will be doing a segment on the Gulen "inspired" charter schools. This isn't the first Gulen operated charter school to close in the USA and will not be the last. Here is a preview for the show. Sorry you dumb Americans have been snow jobbed, surely you noticed how when you ask a direct question to this group you never get a direct answer. They are taught to be skillful liars: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l24bCOKXg08

The Gulenists are loading comments here back and forth to themselves to create more friction and doubt. Here is the problem for them. THis will not save the school and the other Gulen "inspired" charter schools that are under investigation. Russia, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan have already thrown you out. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l24bCOKXg08

To Mark or whoever you are you need to get your facts straight I am a proud American who works for the US Government on behalf of all Americans. So yes I am in Azerbaijan, yes I am a real American and have worked to promote America and American values in over 25 countries. One of the values is freedom of speech and one I cherish -- but some days I wonder So get the facts before you speak hatred for you have no idea what hatred can do. Get the facts Jack --- because you are clueless

Mark - I must have watched the wrong '60 Minutes' report. Unless I'm supposed to be afraid that good education is coming to America. http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=7408162n&tag=contentMain;cbsCarousel The decision to close Fulton Science Academy was a tragedy due to misunderstanding at best, racism at worst. The losers are the 500 students and 500 on the waiting list. The good news is there are a lot of North Fulton parents who are going to be much more politically involved in the future to make sure their voice is heard at the Fulton County School Board, GA Dept of Education and our state legislature.
