There is a long line of folks who have questioned the academic performance and quality of schools operated by online education company K12.  Yesterday, K12 received some vindication.  The lead plaintiff in a class action securities lawsuit against K12 “voluntarily and permanently dismissed the claims it made about the academic performance and educational quality of K12-managed schools.”  In other words, substantial discovery showed that claims of academic improprieties were without merit.

I doubt that this will deter opponents.  Those folks will do everything in their power to keep online charters out of North Carolina.
