Dear Ms. Sandy Green,
This is Dr. Lotus King Weiss, President of the Whole Elephant Institute, a persecuted scholar from the University of Washington, Benaroya Research Institute.
Due to the hate propaganda from the Chinese Communist Government, many people in Washington State still do not know the truth of a profound cultivation practice, called Falun Dafa (www.falundafa.org). The splendid five thousand years of authentic Chinese culture was almost totally destroyed in the communist mainland China during the ten years of "cultural revolution". In recent years, the "made in China" goods which are in fact made by the persecuted people in China and worked as slave labors have flooded American market and has brought great economic crisis to this great nation. Meanwhile, many Chinese families with children are immigrating into Washington State as the Chinese Communist Party is facing its own demise.
For all these reasons, the Whole Elephant Institute is now launching a series of Chinese Charter Schools in several states including Washington State, to help the children to gain true knowledge of both East and West, and become immune to Communist Ideology, so that they can become great leaders for America in different fields and bring Peace and Prosperity to America and the World.
The Whole Elephant Institute is a 501c3 non-profit organization established in 2005 and has accumulated skills and expertise in Chinese-English Bilingual education and in delivering the best of both Chinese Divine Culture as well as Western traditional values to immigrant families in New York State. Since 2012, the Whole Elephant Institute has been building teams for the establishment of Chinese Charter Schools (please see our websites:
and since 2015, the Whole Elephant Institute has initiated efforts to build Chinese Charter Schools in Washington State.
So this year, we are now officially initiating our application for the establishment of the first Chinese Charter School in Washington State. Please find the attached Intent to Apply document for your kind review. Our entire Founding Team is looking forward to join the great community of Charter School Founders and Leadership teams in Washington State to help all wonderful children of our future to learn the best knowledge that they truly need for fulfilling their mission in the world.
