"America's education system is strengthened as school choice grows. All children deserve equal opportunity and access to schools of their choice regardless of their academic, socioeconomic, or geographic circumstance. This is the bedrock principle of school choice: parents know their children best and should have the freedom to choose the right school for their child.
"K12 is a company of educators. We are committed to putting students first because we know parents are putting their children first every day. Through innovative online and blended school models, we are helping to expand the footprint of school choice across America.
