Harmony Science Academy a Gulen Charter School
Harmony Science Academy in Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexico are under the Cosmos Foundation. The Cosmos Foundation ran by Turkish Nationals who are known members of the Gulen Movement have abused many state and federal laws. Cosmos is the largest abuser of H1-B Visas for foreign teachers than the largest school district in America. Scratch your head and wonder why the Gulen Movement is getting away with reverse discrimination? Texas money crosses over state lines to support the other Gulen Managed charter schools, this is WRONG!! DISCLAIMER: If you find some videos are disabled this is the work of the Gulen censorship which has filed bogus copyright infringement rights to UTUBE

TEA-Texas Education Agency updates policy on foreign teachers
Test-takers must be approved to register for exams. For exams administered by Educational Testing Service (ETS) and American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL), approval is determined from the educators TEA account. American Association for family and Consumer Sciences (AAFCS) requires bar codes.
A person who holds a bachelor’s degree or greater from an accredited university, and who has never been admitted to an SBEC-approved Educator Preparation Program, may take a Pre-Admission Content Test (PACT) to demonstrate content mastery.
Candidates in Educator Preparation Programs (EPPs)
Candidates enrolled in educator preparation programs are given approval from their EPP to test.
Additional Certification by Exam Candidates
A teacher who holds a valid Texas classroom teaching certificate and a bachelor's degree may add classroom certification areas by successfully completing the appropriate certification test(s).
Candidates who hold teaching credentials from another state or country will need to apply for a review of credentials for information on obtaining Texas certification. TEA may determine that tests taken in another State may be comparable to Texas certification tests. If TEA determines that it is necessary to take more examinations, TEA will give the candidate approval for those examinations.
Charter School Testing
To fulfill the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) federal requirement to be highly qualified, charter school teachers must demonstrate content mastery in their assignment.
· Available tests through this route are limited to those defined as core content areas by NCLB
· Passing a TExES test does not qualify charter school teachers for a Texas educator certificate.
