NCAA no longer accepting coursework from several virtual high schools

Academic performance by K12 Inc. somehow fails to measure up to rigorous big-money sports cartel standards.

The NCAA has announced it will no longer accept coursework from two dozen online charter high schools around the country. These schools employ a curriculum from a for-profit company called K12 Inc.

The move is understandable, I suppose. K12 has been heavily criticized for producing abysmal results.

Still, how bad do you have to be when your academic standards aren’t good enough for the NCAA? What do they have, monkeys teaching courses?

This one bears watching. My cynical side simply can’t believe that an organization as mercenary as the NCAA and the purveyors of for-profit charter education can’t reach some sort of, ummm, detente.
