K12 Company Lobbies IL Legislators

K12 is a business and has not been supportive of protecting homeschool freedoms while maintaining and growing their business with government schools.

In Illinois, there are homeschooling families who successfully use (and pay for) the K12 curriculum (International Academy), as a private school option.

The K12 company has made at least 34 different contributions to our IL representatives, including Rod Blagojevich…no surprise there…, in the last couple of years.  Bill sponsor, Representative Chapa LaVia, received contributions.

I don’t know that K12 will be used for this state-wide virtual school, but K12 is used for the Chicago Virtual School, that opened in the fall of 2006

Here are the recorded Illinois legislators accepting campaign monies from the Virginia based K12 Company:
