Texas Charter Schools Allegedly Funneling Religion Into Lessons

Claiming that God “has given [her] the jurisdiction to operate with dominion” and that running schools was “a divine assignment,” Cheryl Washington has channeled millions in both federal and state funds into building the Shekinah Learning Institute. The SLI now comprises 13 taxpayer-funded schools across the state, receiving over $17 million in taxpayer funds and helping educate approximately 2,500 “at-risk” students.
