More Troubles for K12–Do They Succeed By Coopting Local School Boards?

The Portland Press Herald has a story today (http://www.pressherald.com/news/operator-of-web-charter-schools-gets-a-bad-grade_2013-01-18.html) about another K12 failure, this time in the Adams 12 school district near Denver, CO.  According to the story, not only is the K12 virtual charter, The Colorado Virtual Academy, one of the district’s worst performing schools, but it also appears to be trying to take over the local school board.  Concerns over the independence of a proposed K12 charter school here in Maine were a key reason that charter’s application was denied, leading to an angry tirade by our governor.
