Their K12-funded printer spits out results from the latest spelling test, while a science lab set up on the kitchen table stands ready to be used.

    I hope the measurement is based on quality of the education received ... if it cost less, and the education is superior... I would hope who ever delivered the product was well paid... to provide motivation to deliver more in the future...
    Doug is right though, it is prudent to investigate the product provided and who is providing it...
