K12's virtual academy in North Carolina (Did not realize K12 is for profit) - gave myself and other teachers promises of advancement during recruitment that somehow altered as new leaders were hired (outside of the state might I add) that seemed intimidated by other skilled educators (bait and switch); highly-qualified and hardworking teachers are not respected. Also, there is a lack of focus on students' overall and individual learning and tunnel vision is developed momentarily with a strong concern ONLY for the reputation of SCORES. Should this be the ONLY focus?

I was a contractor for k12 and worked full time brick and mortar. It can be done. But you are not at all valued at k12 for the wealth of knowledge you bring to their company as an educator. If you are in need of making money you can tolerate things. Professionalism of k12 is questionable, lacks the professionalism found in brick and mortar.

Lack of professionalism. Redirect to questions - finding people with answers. As a contractor you’re paid based on # of students,, if not a lot of students your not being paid much so chasing answers burns time and you are not paid enough to chase. To be honest as a seasoned professional in brick and mortar holding district level positions i felt like i was treated like a teenager working a fast food restaurant. Little respect received as a contractor.

Administrators of the public schools work for the schools. K12 sells them software licensing to use (public schools may pay for this with taxpayer money, or this is how it used to be... a web search may yield results to this nature)
