Gulen Charter Schools or Gulen-Inspired Schools?

Well, here is the question. How should we call those schools; Gulen charter schools, or Gulen inspired schools? Which one is your favorite?

Another way of calling them is to simply use the original name of each charter schools, e.g. Horizon Science Academy managing by Concept Schools. This seems to be the most apropriate way of callling them.

Nonetheless, those gooses who relentlessly attack, for instance, Concept managed schools call them Gulen charter schools as if there was such an umbrella name of charter schools. Food for thought; call always people and institutions with their roper names.

Who is this Gulen, by the way? Anybody heard of him? Okay, if you do not know about him, let me just say this. He is a Turkish Muslim schoolar who lives in a kind of self exile in the Pocono Mountins. All of his speeaches and works are public so that those who want to get some inspiration can benefit from his universal as well as Islamic thoughts.

Let's go back to our main discussion; Gulen charter schools, or Gulen inspired schools? Well, for me it is more accurate to just call them with their propper names. That is why I always do. If you guys have a better idea, you are more welcome to say it. Here is my final thought, they are not Gulen charter schools, but THEY ARE
