Featured Review

Former Employee - Special Education Teacher

I worked at K12 full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Working at home online; very supportive administration; numerous effective educational programs; students have more opportunities to self-pace their education; teachers have more opportunities to... provide better differential instruction.

Cons

Online schools depend on a triangular support system: the certified teacher providing curriculum instruction, the parent providing the physical support as the student's learning coach, and the... student taking ownership of his/her educational responsibility. Often, it's the teacher working the hardest, which throws off this educational system. Many parents enroll into an online school thinking all that needs to happen is putting the student in front of the computer and they'll learn from there without the parent's support. Online schools are still a home school program, however, the advantage is that a certified teacher is providing instruction.

Former Employee - OSS Tech

I worked at Chicago Public Schools full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

If you love kids and technology is the best place for you to work. Genius Lab allows you to be innovative, creative, and the owner of your space.

Cons

If you don't have strong classroom management skills, the work can be tiring.
