Dr. Soner Tarim’s Royal Charters

“Ex-Harmony Charter School Director Denied Permission by SBOE To Set up Royal Charters in Texas”

By Donna Garner       

6.14.19

The Texas State Board of Education just voted 8 to 5 NOT to allow Dr. Soner Tarim’s Royal Charters to come into Texas.  Tarim’s application was not approved. Until 2017 Tarim was the head of the Harmony Charters about which there have been national outcries of concern – even a documentary movie was produced called “Killing Ed” by Mark Hall.

I am very excited that this Royal Charter was denied, and I thank those SBOE members who voted to deny Tarim’s application.

The yes votes [to deny Dr. Tarim’s application] were G. Perez, Cortez, Perez-Diaz, Hardy, Little, Davis, Melton-Malone, and Rowley. The no votes [to allow Dr. Tarim’s application to go forward] were Allen, Robinson, Cargill, Ellis, and Maynard. Absent for the vote were Mercer and Bahorich.
