Big, big props to Gabby Douglas for bringing back the gold to the US of A!
I'd like to point out that Gabby is home schooled by a different family than her own. Such is the way of the olympian, a life few families will ever understand.
Chris Cerf says we need virtual charter schools to serve kids like Gabby. Well, she seems to have done just fine without K12 Inc's help, thank you. The fact is that kids like Gabby are very, very rare - that's why they get gold medals.
We are in awe of Gabby Douglas tonight because she is so special. Using her as a justification for on-line charter schools is beyond idiotic; those few wonderful kids who will compete at the Olympics do not need corporate vultures to help them make their dreams come true.
