Attorneys for K12, Inc. and Seminole County schools have responded to a preliminary report by a Florida Department of Education investigator.

The Florida Department of Education inspector general has released a draft report in its investigation of online education firm K12, Inc. The agency was asked to investigate whether K12, Inc. was using properly certified teachers in Seminole County.

The report (read it here) finds no evidence that the company used teachers lacking Florida certification. But the report found the company did use three teachers who were not certified for the subject they were teaching.

Both K12 and the Seminole County schools district have disputed the report. The inspector general will consider those responses and could alter the conclusions or recommendations before issuing a final report.

    Investigators need to keep digging on this issue. K12 pays good lobbying and legal money to have things like this ‘dismissed,’ yet they go on every day, all the time. Don’t get fooled…..
