Online K-12 Education in Iowa?
Students take classes over the Internet from teachers employed by the corporate partner, not by the physical schools. Representatives from K12Inc. say this new-wave educational approach is perfectly tailored for students who are either home-schooled, like Theo had been, or struggling in traditional schools. Critics say the schools are not only illegal but also a way that for-profit companies can siphon off millions in tax dollars while delivering dubious results.
