What Employees Say
I worked at K12 full-time for more than 3 years
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.
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.
