Review for Tarek Ibn Ziyad Academy, Inver Grove, MN, USA
TIZA is currently set for court , lawsuit moved by the ACLU for operating a religious school masquerading as a public charter school. The state dept of education, MN, has cited this school on two occasions for using unlicensed staff posing as licensed teachers, two staff acting as teachers were aids. In 2008, TIZA allegedly had their teachers assisting in Islamic prayers during school hours. In 2010, the Director/ Imam (also a former director of the Muslim Association of MN) retaliated against a parent for asking question of how the school operates. The Imam/ Director of TIZA sent a warning letter to staff telling them to remain silent and not share any inside workings with the public.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
informal and formal direct observational experience of students and staff.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Close it down and have the courts order them to reimburse the state of MN tax payers for the millions used and poorly accounted for.
