And should probably be held back a year:
A report released last week shows that students enrolled at K12 Inc., an online school company linked to a nonprofit group in Cabarrus County, are falling behind in reading and math scores compared with students in traditional brick-and-mortar schools.
I don't expect the anti-government crowd to pay too much attention to this, since better-performing schools is not their main goal anyway. Their main goal is to take away any sort of collective (government) control over the education process, which represents about $10 billion in revenues. Quality is somewhere down the list of priorities, probably next to whether or not we should have buses.
