There is a new concept in Tucson's primary education. 

The "K-12 Public School at Home" tour was in Tucson Wednesday. The company works with local charter schools to offer online-based education. 

Tucson is the 2nd of 15 cities in 11 states included on the national tour.

The company was co-founded in 1999 with an investment from a "junk bond" financier. Less than 10 years ago, the company settled multiple lawsuits based on its poor student and financial performance.

The tour will continue on these dates in Tucson: 

  • Thursday, June 21st 9 a.m. - 11 a.m.: K12 Blended Learning Center, 5307 East Broadway Blvd
  • Friday, June 22nd 5 p.m. - 8 p.m.: Reid Park Zoon, 3400 East Zoo Court
