Howdy Folks,
       This is our 2016 August eNewsLetter which is still reporting the failures of Common Core and the deficiencies of The Florida K12.com Virtual School.  The popularity and growth in Common Core resistance, repeal and state nullification efforts has produced several ongoing monthly update sections as listed in the "PS" sections below.  After 3 years of calling out Common Core there are still problems of transparency and accountability to the parents and people using CCore and also The Florida K12.com Virtual School program.  Home Schooling has always been presented in August as an option for parents of the regular federally indoctrinated public schools ( IndoctriNation movie - FREE ); and now, it is a pragmatic relief from Common Core.  People! Parents! how much motivation is necessary for them to choose anything other than public schools?

  2. 2013 Two New Evils Targeting Our Public School Children: COMMON CORE and K12.com Virtual Schools. (Part 1.)
  3. 2014 Repeals, Rejections And Questions Still Nag Common Core And K12.Com A Year Later.
  4. 2015 Repeals, Rejections And Objections Still Nag Common Core And K12.Com Two Years Later.
         The Florida K12.com Virtual School is a huge failure for parents looking for an escape from Common Core.  Who cares if it's FREE.  There is no difference between online schools and online curricula with public schools.  There is no improvement period. The current information about K12 is: K12.com/about... is a Florida LLC.
Problem #1.   Florida Virtual Instruction Programs Disclosure Information  has a K12 Florida LLC Nonsectarian Policy (pdf) which cites the  FL Statutes:  Chapter 1000   K-20 GENERAL PROVISIONS,   Part I:  Section 1000.05, F.S  nondiscrimination policy.  Both of them are identical in that they mention: race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, disability, or marital status; however, when they get to their K 12 Florida LLC Employment Policies and Practices Related to Anti-Discrimination REVISED 2.10.13  (pdf), they include "sexual orientation".  If  sexual orientation" discrimination charges start flying around, suddenly discrimination is diminished and FL's criminal law is paramount as it's a gang related hate crime.  Whereas mediocre discrimination could have been handled amicability by the administration, now it's a crime where arrest and jail are possible outcomes.  See  FL Statutes Chapter 874  CRIMINAL GANG ENFORCEMENT AND PREVENTION 874.03  Again we have suddenly gone from the potential of amicably working through a situation to a hate crime and potential arrest etc..  I'm thinking that the employees and staff of K12.com could easily be unnecessarily harmed.  What is the potential danger to students and parents?
Problem #2.     K12 Florida LLC  on pages 1,6 & 7 of:   K12 Florida LLC Disclosure Requirements (pdf)  (Emphases added, updated 8/7/17.) This disclosure document states it's "free of bias" and then their Common Core standards and other leftist associations are proudly listed on page 4.

K12’s Suite of Curriculum Content and Assessment
Assessments are aligned with the course objectives and are written first in the development process using the “backward design” approach.  Test items are made up of a mix of basic knowledge, application of that knowledge in context, and analysis, synthesis, and evaluation questions.  Assessments are age- and course-appropriate, as well as free from bias.  Varied performance-based assignments are embedded throughout the courses.  For assessments that are not computer-graded, scoring rubrics are provided for all required assignments or assessments.  Extensive use of test pools and randomized test questions with a variety of cognitive levels build academic integrity in the assessments.  Question pools and randomization also ensure that students taking the course at the same time are not being presented with the same exam.  Semester examinations assess students’ overall mastery of the content.

        What assurances are there that K12.com is worth the risk to the kids' time and talent?  From the K12.com web site I have found that: it is national,  publicly traded [ LRN K12 Inc. Stock Quote (NYSE) $13.26, Aug 2016] and that it has some links to various state oversight agencies, policies and laws.  However, it just doesn't seem to have the transparency or provide the confidence that after the parents' due diligence to review and qualify the state's oversight and acceptance; and then qualify the companies administration and their curriculum; and be somewhat assured that the company would not be bought out by a philanthropic foundation for $100 million just to have the standards dumbed down, changed or modified so that the end is worse than the beginning.  My real concern is that the FL Dept of Ed. who oversees the states' public school curriculum have allowed all manner of fallacies to creep into most disciplines.  We have a lot of assurances that the new, free virtual school crap is just going to be the same old crap in a new bag?
        The 4 part series of August 2013 and past newsletters can be found here sorted by year & month.  This sub-title  Escape Common Core and K12.com: Homeschool from the August 2013 eNewsLetter has been updated and provides a lot of homeschool helps, references and links for the parent to get started and to use for teaching their own children at home as The best alternative to pubic school.

PS 2  Update to Alternatives to Public Schools

  1. TX parents watching school district closely Comment by Martin Rizley (https://disqus.com/by/martinrizley/) |  Friday, July 22, 2016 | Public schools in the "Obamanation" ... are quite literally turning (in many instances) into Luciferian Training Academies in which young people are taught the art of apostate thinking and high-handed rebellion against God.  If you want your kids to learn how to call evil, good and good, evil, how to navigate through life without any regard for God´s revealed truth or moral will, without any fear of God before their eyes, a good place to send them may well be to that Luciferian Training Academy down the street.  Only don´t be surprised if they graduate from there with their conscience seared, their values twisted, their minds darkened by the politically correct celebration of all that is unclean, immoral, and perverse, and with an attitude of disdain and contempt for all that is true, sacred, pure and holy.  That is the whole point of their publicly-funded state-designed "education."
