K12 online learning provider compliant with law

 

There was a serious case of selective reporting in the May 12 article, K12 Inc. struggled to comply with law. Writing about a complaint filed against online learning provider K12 Inc. by a school district, reporters selectively pulled quotes from a lengthy recorded meeting among K12 educators. Yet they excluded from the article the most significant and illuminating passages where K12 supervisors clearly instruct teachers to follow all state laws and direct that “no teacher should fill out anything that isn’t correct.”

All of the documents and recordings referenced were fully reviewed by the Office of the Inspector General, which released a draft report finding no evidence to support the allegation that we avoided teacher certification laws.

K12 disclosed and corrected minor record-keeping errors and its status as a state-approved online school provider in Florida was recently renewed. Its program is fully compliant with Florida laws. K12’s education programs are used in thousands of schools and districts across the United States and our record on compliance is strong.

Most important, K12 is proud to employ and work with many dedicated teachers who are serving children every day.

  • A very liveable city

    Re the July 21 article Car-free and frustrated: I, too, live in Brickell and I have been delighted with the wonderful transportation system in downtown Miami. I can easily get to the University of Miami hospitals, the airport, the Arsht Center, the museums and hundreds of great restaurants. And when the new Brickell City Center opens, with its great shops, it will be even better. I almost never use my car.

  • Immigration reform

    Re the July 18 editorial, Follow the law: We should rescue some valid assertions. First, we all should know why so much insecurity exists in Central America.
