A follow-up to a post from yesterday. Katherine Jean Lopez from NRO interviewed Chester E Finn, Jr.. Mr. Finn is a member of the board, and chairman of the education advisory committee, a blue-ribbon group of education experts from around the country for k12.

When asked about the prohibitive cost of the program, he responded:

Finn: Considering the quality of the program, it's going to be a real bargain for parents. But we are also seeking alliances with schools and after-school programs and philanthropists that can help bring this program within reach of thousands of low-income families. (And of course for those who enroll via a "virtual" charter school, there's no charge at all.)

While this doesn't completely assuage my my concerns, it does make me feel a bit better.
