Description
K12 Inc. enrolls more public school students than any other private education management organization in the U.S. Much has been written about K12 Inc. (referred to in this report simply as "K12") by financial analysts and investigative journalists because it is a large, publicly traded company and is the dominant player in the operation and expansion of full-time virtual schools. This report provides a new perspective on the nation's largest virtual school provider through a systematic review and analysis of student characteristics, school finance, and school performance of K12-operated schools. Using federal and state data, this report provides a description of the students served by K12 and the public revenues received and spent by the company at the school level. Further, the report presents evidence from a range of school performance measures and strives to understand and explain the overall weak performance of these virtual schools. Appended are: (1) Demographic Characteristics of Students Enrolled in K12 Schools, 2010-11; (2) Details on Publicly Reported Revenues and Expenditures for Schools Operated by K12 Inc., 2008-09; (3) State Performance Ratings, Adequate Yearly Progress Status, and Reasons for Not Meeting AYP; (4) Performance of K12 Schools on State Reading Assessments, 2010-11; (5) Performance of K12 Schools on State Math Assessments, 2010-11; and (6) Questions about Online Learning for Policymakers and School Leaders from the Center for Public Education Study. (Contains 14 figures, 6 tables, 83 notes and references, and 1 footnote.).
