Congresswoman asks feds to probe K12, Inc.

A Florida congresswoman is asking the U.S. Department of Education to investigate allegations that K12, Inc., the Virginia-based for-profit virtual school company, used non-certified teachers to teach classes.

The request was made by U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown,a Democrat from Jacksonville, Fla., according to NPR and the Florida Center for Investigative Reporting.

The request is one of series of blows for K12, which is trying to open a statewide virtual charter school in North Carolina. The company’s request has been denied, but the company and a non-profit organization set up to house the school are appealing the matter to the N.C. Court of Appeals.
