The Lancaster school board unanimously rejected a charter for the Academy of Business and Entrepreneurship Charter School.

The school wanted a charter for K-12 but intended to open only with K-4.

The charter pons ores plan to appeal o a state board, which can overturn the local decision.

Earlier articles noted that this charter is part of the Gulen network, the nation’s largest charter chain, which is affiliated with a reclusive Muslim cleric who lives in the Poconos but controls a political movement in Turkey. Typically the boards of Gulen schools are composed entirely of Turkish men, and many of their teachers are Turkish.
