The Republic of Turkey engaged Amsterdam & Partners LLP to conduct a comprehensive accounting of all Gülenist-controlled charter schools within the U.S. to document the breadth and scope of the Gülenist network. Through this investigation, Amsterdam & Partners ultimately uncovered an extensive nationwide network of Gülenists, charter schools, charter management corporations, educational foundations, real estate companies, school vendors, and Gülenist cultural associations working together to exploit the American charter school model to orchestrate large-scale private profit at the public's expense.
