K12 Inc. Commits to Education Continuity During Coronavirus Outbreak

I am often quick to criticize K12, Inc. and Pearson Education for their enrollment predatory practices and poor student performance in the K-12 online learning world.  But I also want to be able to praise them when they have earned it.  As you can see from the first item below, here is an example of K12, Inc. acting like a public school, and not a private corporation – offering up its curriculum, its online tools, and its expertise to help their fellow public school students, teachers, and leaders during this unprecedented time.

Today, a big tip of the hat to K12, Inc. – VERY WELL DONE!!!

An Update from the K12 Inc. Public Affairs Team (April 3, 2020)  View this email in your browser
K12 Inc. Commits to Education Continuity During Coronavirus Outbreak
K12 Inc. is responding to the nationwide wave of school closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic by offering free online curriculum, platforms, training, and technical assistance for students, families and school districts.“The spread of COVID-19 is a global pandemic disrupting the lives and livelihoods of billions of people around the world,” said K12 CEO and Chairman Nate Davis. “With schools closing their doors – potentially for months – K12 is committed to providing the support and tools that will enable students of all ages to continue to learn and grow.”Read more here.

Online Instruction Can (and Does) Work for Students with Disabilities
By Jeff Kwitowski

A heavy burden falls on the parents of students with disabilities, and the teachers who serve them, who are facing the sudden new reality of learning full-time from home.  It’s not easy. I know. I’m one of those parents.

But I take confidence, and others should too, knowing there are thousands of dedicated online school educators who have been doing this for years.  They are on the front lines. They understand what works. Most importantly, they have knowledge and wisdom to share and a sincere desire to help.

News & Commentary

FEATURE STORY:   Online Charter Schools Help Idaho Students During COVID-19 Pandemic

Monti Pittman, head of Idaho Technical Career Academy, said both his school and Idaho Virtual Academy are ready and willing to share knowledge and expertise with fellow educators in Idaho. He said there are teachers and staff that used to work in traditional schools and have made the transition to remote learning and are also standing ready to help.

“Our schools also work with a national provider, K12 Inc., that is giving free content to families, curriculum, platform, services, and teacher training to school districts in need,” Pittman tells KMVT, in addition to hosting webinars and lessons from K-12 educators, he said.
