And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. ~Matthew 10:28

Islamists Run The Largest Charter School Network In the USA!

The 135 charter schools associated with the Gulen Movement (GM) enroll more than 45,000 students and comprise the largest charter school network in the United States — all of which are fully funded by American taxpayers. Fethullah Gulen has been under investigation by the government since 2011. Although the GM and the Muslim Brotherhood ( MB) are not known to be linked, the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) is a known terrorist front group that has succeeded in influencing public education in America.

By Shane Stapley - Former GPS Board Member, on September 25th, 2012

GilbertSchools.Info website tech support and site manager Shane Stapley recently received a legal complaint regarding a past article posted on the site.

No Wonder GPS Wants More Money-See Where The Money Went

Westie Connect 10-14-13

We wonder why Gilbert Public Schools protects the Loose Zipper Brigade with such intensity. As Karma would have it, some important information fell into our laps during one of our recent visits to GPS to review public records.

The Loose Zipper Brigade presides over an enormous amount of money that comes from Title I and Title II grants. We found the 2011 report for those funds, which were supposed to be used for “improving teacher quality.” When you see how GPS actually spent this money,...



This tells you all you need to know about why the Override
is not necessary in Gilbert. Per pupil spending has increased
at a rate that significantly outpaces inflation, while the
% of dollars spent in the classroom has declined.
Where have they spent all the money?

Gilbert Schools Receives Money from Multiple Sources, but they Want More. Vote NO to the Override.

by Julie Farnsworth

Gilbert Unified School District Parent
LD12 Precinct Committeeman

The 2012-2013 Gilbert school year operated on a $300 million plus budget.  The school district operates with funding from multiple sources, including state tax dollars, federal tax dollars, primary property taxes, secondary bond monies, the current override, some corporate/private funding, plus additional fees collected from parents (e.g., fees for certain classes, sports, parking, etc.).  Throughout the year, Gilbert Unified School District receives hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations and equipment, including laptop computers.  Citizens also donate money every year which they can deduct from their state tax return in the form of  a tax credit.  The School District uses this money for curricular activities.

  3. Monies "floating around" in schools with no oversight.
  4. Bloated bureaucracy.

Not Another Override In Gilbert!

SEPTEMBER 27, 2013 GilbertWatch 

by Jeff Smith
September 27, 2013

I saw a sign encouraging me to vote yes on the Override. 

Imagine my delight  as I learned this wouldn’t be an

expense of any sort, but rather, an investment! 

Furthermore, I learned it all will happen without a

tax increase!  Then an elf promised to spin straw

into gold for me, but he disappeared, so you’ll

just have to take my word for it. I am compelled to

address this dishonest campaign being waged by

the Override machine. First, the idea that somehow

the Override isn’t a tax increase.  This is patently false. 

If the Override isn’t a tax increase, why does it

have to go to the voter’s at all?  Why must the board send it

to the ballot if it isn’t a tax increase?  Of course

the Override is a tax increase.  If it passes, our property taxes

will be higher than if it doesn’t pass.  That’s the very

definition of a tax increase.  Q.E.D.

Former Gilbert Public Schools Governing Board Shoots Down Prayer At Board Meetings 9-4-12:

Mesa’s God is UNWELCOME in Gilbert

By GPSInformer, on September 10th, 2012

In Congress, in Washington D.C., in Arizona’s State Legislature, and even in Mesa’s School Board meetings, before any business is conducted, one of the first items on the agenda is to start the meeting with prayer. In Gilbert’s school board meetings, this is not the case… nor has it been for some time. But for now… it’s the way it will be, because the God of our Congress, our State Legislature, and even Mesa’s board meetings, is not welcome in Gilbert’s. Moreover, board members have decided it’s not even worth discussion.

On Sept 4, 2012 during a GPS school board meeting held at district offices, an item appeared on the agenda to allow discussion of opening future board meetings with a non-denominational invocation. More...
