The Emperor Wears no Clothes
Teasher (Former Employee), San DiegoDecember 15, 2012
Pros: one-to-one learning
Cons: cult-like work envirmonment
Fusion is a great idea in theory, 'One to one" education almost ensures student success, but there's a lot of ugly secrets behind the curtains. First, the tuition is astronomical (more than most colleges per year) and the real academic expectations of students are the bare minimum; It's basically a degree mill for the "1% ers" out there whose kids have – more... been kicked out of 2-3 schools before they show up at Fusion. The parents have no where to turn, and Fusion is definitely a better option than boarding school. If you can afford the $27,000 a year , give or take, then your child will get a good experience, as attention is paid to students emotional as well as academic well being. Just realize that when push comes to shove, you will have essentially bought them a high school degree (its borderline impossible to fail). In a perfect world, all schools should provide a one to one model, but in reality its the uber-rich that are the only people who can benefit (due to the fact that they offer 0 scholarships or financial aid,,,which also leads to the least diverse staff and student I've ever seen). It's a business, owned by a investment firm, that's in turn owned by an even bigger elite investment firm. So, profit is the bottom line. One result is that the quality of the education can be called into question: many of Fusion's staff are basically unqualified (under-credentialed and relatively inexperienced), as well as grossly underpaid compared to their public school counter-parts, but Fusion instills a cult-like allegiance from day 1 that they have the best job in the world, and should not bring up anything negative about the school if they want to keep their job. This cult-like nature of the organization iss exactly why most don't hear about this darker side of Fusion. Parents and teachers are scared to say what everyone on the inside knows: "The Emperor where's no clothes." – less
