RTV6 Indiana reports on a new investigation into a Gülen-affiliated charter school in Indiana. The Indiana Math and Science Academy in northern Indianapolis was raided by federal agents from the FBI and investigated by the US Department of Education for taxpayer fraud:
The FBI, The U.S. Department of Education and the Federal Communications Commission were investigating Indiana Math and Science Academy on the city’s north side.
Officials raided the facility late Wednesday afternoon. It took until Thursday afternoon for the FBI to confirm they were conducting an ongoing white-collar crime investigation.
Wednesday’s raid was described as extremely low-key. There were no FBI jackets or marked vehicles — workers just appeared to load documents into a van.
The FBI said if the investigation extends into the school year, the school should be able to continue to operate.
Officials said 600 students attend the charter school that opened in 2010. Students had already been dismissed for the summer.
