EDTECH537 – Commentary Entry: Marketing Cyber Schooling

As I mentioned in the EDTECH537 – Week 4 entry for my EDTECH537 – Blogging In The Classroom course, I wanted to post a sample of a commentary entry.

About a week and a half ago, I was taking stock of my blog – as I am oft to do when I am teaching EDTECH537.  One of the things that I noticed was that I no longer receive newsletters from K12, Inc. and Connections Academy anymore, but I used to in the past (in fact I used to receive newsletters from several of the individual Connections Academy schools in several different states – but no more).  As when I used to post many of these newsletters in the past, I would forget to remove the “unsubscribe me” links and assumed that someone had unsubscribed me from these lists.  So I went to the websites for both companies to see if I could re-subscribe.

So I went to the websites belonging to the two companies to try and sign up for the newsletters again.  It seems that the only thing I was able to find was a general form for more information that was designed for prospective students and parents/guardians.  So I signed up…

Almost immediately I received this e-mail:

Three minutes later I received a call from one of K12, Inc.‘s telemarketers to try and sign my and my children up.  The thing is that I don’t have children; and while the person who called was polite and pleasant, it wasn’t until I underscored this point that the person on the other end of the telephone was okay with letter me hang up.

Interestingly, I have also received three additional e-mails from K12, Inc. since this first day’s contact.

At the same time, I have received no additional contact from the other company.

I was reminded of an article I read about the application of for profit education within higher education – The Telemarketing of Higher Ed.  I was also reminded of comments that I’ve heard my colleague Luis Huerta talk about many times, with the aggressive and predatory recruiting – as well as the churn – of students by these for profit cyber charter schools.
