    I worked at K12 full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Excellent co-workers and administrators. Work from home.

    Cons

    Pay is less than a traditional school setting. However, the stress level was less and the safety concerns of a classroom were non-existent.

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

    Pros

    Easier classroom management and way less bullying than at brick-and-mortar schools; can wear whatever you want from the waist down (jeans, shorts, flip-flops)

    Cons

    WAY OVERLOADED with number of students assigned to you (try at least 30-35 IEPs while also being in class and in meetings for the majority of the day); most sped teachers at FLCCA will tell you they work anywhere from 10-18 hrs PER DAY and 8 on weekends and are still drowning. Most of them beg for more time to help their students with special needs, yet the administration refuses to egg knowledge their need for more time and instead load them up with more students. So many great teachers special Ed and regular Ed have left this company due to being used and abused!

    Approves of CEO

    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.

    • Work/Life Balance

    • Compensation and Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Special Education Teacher in Chicago, IL

    I worked at K12 full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexibility with this virtual position tops that of the traditional brick-and-mortar school setting.

    Cons

    Salary is far below that of non-virtual school settings, and does not take into account education level or years of experience.
