Letter: K12 bad for us
K12 Inc., our for-profit vendor for online educational services, is a lot like heroin.
They both cost dearly, at the same time they both make you sick and stupid. They both leave you needing more. They both undermine the soul of the community, at the same time they exploit our most valuable resource — our youth. They are both born of the greedy enterprise of felons, and they both thrive on ignorance.
There are three big differences:
1. K12 Inc. is far more profitable than heroin;
2. You can stop using K12 Inc. more easily than you can stop using heroin;
3. You can eliminate K12 Inc. more easily that you can eliminate heroin.
Tell the Greenfield Commonwealth Virtual School board of trustees to stop using K12 Inc. before it really is too late. Like now.
