Already feeling bad about your academics? Want to get better grades and avoid bullies? Avoid K-12! Let me start off by saying that I have been with K-12 for three years in elementary and have came back to try it again, I majorly screwed up. The teachers like to bully the students and give you 16 pages of homework on stuff we have not learned in class, and this is a nightly routine. This schools system is very unprofessional and stressful. There is no one on one learning with the teachers, they act as if they have more important things to do, like most teachers they cry “over worked and underpaid!”… Now wait a minute, is $20-$25 an hour to start underpaid? And overworked? They’re the ones sitting at home reading academics from different states out of a textbook and read it to us. Their job isn’t hard, but they still can’t master teaching. All of the teachers are horrible, I have YET to find one that can work with me, and MANY of other students are having this same problem as I see it in the chat-box, and the teachers whine about it when they get called out on their faults. Even enrollment was stressful, having to jump through hoops to enroll in school isn’t right. And I am pushing to get this school shut down as soon as possible, as I am currently enrolled in this school and am in jeopardy of failing this year, because the teachers cannot re-read the book of academics correctly.
SHUT K-12 DOWN!
I have home taught my children for 15 years. A few years ago we tried k-12. While we did withdraw from the program after a few weeks , it was for different reasons.
My son was signed up for middle school programs full time. We had a lot of support from the teachers who seemed competent and attentive. There were activities and times when the teachers were available for tutoring online. They were also available to call for one on one help. We withdrew from the program because of schedule constraints only. The classes took a lot of time and left if little flexibility. Other than this, K-12 was great.
