Trevor Aaronson: Brevard Public Schools has launched a review of K12 teacher records following allegations that the for-profit online educator uses improperly certified teachers.
John O'Connor: K12 said the company always uses Florida-certified teachers, but the company’s internal review found “minor mistakes” in matching grade and course certifications to students.
John O'Connor: The county will survey parents of student who took courses through K12 to make sure the listed teacher actually taught the student.
Trevor Aaronson: K12 did not believe the Florida Department of Education's probe was "material" to investors.
Trevor Aaronson: K12, the nation’s largest online educator with business in 43 Florida counties, described as overblown questions about the company’s use of uncertified teachers in violation of state law.
The documents include internal K12 emails in which a company manager asked certified teachers to sign for having taught students they never encountered.
