John O'Connor and Trevor Aaronson: In online education, more flexibility or less oversight?
Responses to the FCIR-StateImpact Florida investigation of K12 have come from around the state and across the country.
Trevor Aaronson and John O'Connor: La proporción de la cantidad de alumnos por maestro en K12, la mayor empresa de educación en línea del país, es casi el doble que en la escuela virtual dirigida por el estado de la Florida.
The document shows K12 uses a student-teacher ratio as high as 275-to-1.
Trevor Aaronson and John O'Connor: Student-teacher ratios at K12, the nation’s largest online educator, are nearly twice as high as Florida’s state-run virtual school, according to internal company documents obtained by FCIR and StateImpact Florida.
John O'Connor and Trevor Aaronson: Many Florida school districts have no way to know whether K12 students are actually being taught by properly certified teachers.
