Stride Learning – New Study: Parents Say Online Schools More Transparent Than Traditional Schools

Speaking of schools operated by K12, Inc./Stride, Inc….  This item scrolled through my inbox the other day.

Now I don’t want to point out the irony here, but this is study comes from a company that has been included in the following entries on this blog related to attempting to hide things from the public, policymakers, legislators, their own shareholders:

And what have K12, Inc. (not Stride, Inc.) not been transparent about over the years…

  • the number of students they serve (i.e., inflating their enrollment figures to gain additional state per pupil funding)
  • outsourcing their grading to foreign countries like India to save money
    • whether student data was also sent not only out-of-state (which is illegal in most states), but also out-of-country
  • student performance
  • student to teacher ratios
  • whether state and federally funded services were actually provided to students
  • potential for corporate (i.e., shareholder) profits
  • corporate (i.e., shareholder) impact of school closures or loss of school charters
  • just to name a few

Blog Entry – 98 Percent of Ohio Charter School Graduates are Less Prepared for Post-Graduate World Than Students in Youngstown City Schools

The third and final entry that that caught my attention from the blog 10th Period that I wanted to share was:

98 Percent of Ohio Charter School Graduates are Less Prepared for Post-Graduate World Than Students in Youngstown City Schools

Dayton is the lowest performing major urban district. Yet 2 out of 3 Ohio charter schools are less prepared than Dayton students.

Ohio’s new report card has revealed something extremely troubling about Ohio’s Charter Schools. On a new measure called “Students in the 4-year Graduation Cohort who Completed a Pathway and are Prepared for College or Career Success”, only 9 percent of Ohio’s potential Charter School graduates met those qualifications. More than 36 percent of Ohio’s public school district students met those qualifications.

This one caught my attention because:

I’d also like to use some space to bring up the Ohio Virtual Academy (OHVA) — the ECOT-sized online school. OHVA was paid to educate 14,530 students last year — more students than ECOT ever was paid to educate.

Yet they are just as bad as ECOT at preparing their students for the post-graduate world. An astonishing 87 of 1,820 potential OHVA grads were considered college or career ready. That 4.8 percent rate is lower than all but one Ohio school district — New Miami Local in Butler County, which only had 1 of 44 potential graduates considered college or career ready.

Maybe it’s time to take a look under OHVA’s hood. They did receive $104 million last year to produce these anemic results, after all.

What was it I was just saying about being good stewards of the public purse and the promise of a quality public education?
