The “education” they provide is abysmal. Typically, they have high attrition, low graduation rates, and low scores on state tests. The state fails to monitor them for quality.The School insists its students have high needs, blaming them for the dismal rates of completion and achievement.But it still has not explained why it collected millions of dollars for phantom students.Betsy DeVos strongly endorses Virtual Charter schools because they offer “choice.” Results and quality don’t matter.'

Michigan: Virtual Schools Grow Despite High Failure Rate

click here

The virtual charter industry is booming in Michigan, despite its abysmal performance. Michigan, DeVos's home state, has outsourced its education system as much as possible to for-profit entrepreneurs. Michigan is the only state where 80% of charters are operated by for-profit corporations. According to this report, one-quarter of the 101,000 students attending virtual charters did not pass a single class. The graduation rate is far below that of public schools. Michigan's standing on NAEP has fallen to the bottom 10 since the widespread adoption of school choice. Michigan is an exemplar of PROFITS MATTER, NOT EDUCATION.
