I forgot the critical link, now inserted.

A lawsuit in Virginia, where the K12 for-profit virtual schools corporation is based, has brought out some dirty linen.

Among the allegations are that K12 relies upon churn to produce high revenues and that some teachers have a class size of 400 students.

Follow the links and read the document. It’s fascinating and alarming.

This is the scam that Jeb Bush and Bob Wise are promoting as 21st century learning. They call it personalization and customization. Their “Ten Elements” for digital learning urges states to deregulate these for-profit schools completely, to allow them free rein to recruit students and use uncertified teachers. They even say that these corporations should not be required to have an office in the state where they open a virtual school.

This is education reform.

Follow the money.
