- I am disappointed to learn Dr. William Bennett has resigned his chairmanship of K12.
McLean, VA -- October 3, 2005 - K12, Inc. today announced that William J. Bennett has resigned as an employee, and as Chairman and member of the company's Board of Directors, effective immediately. K12 Inc. said the Board accepted his resignation, thanking him for his contributions to the company. K12 Inc. said that it has no relationship with, or involvement in, Dr. Bennett's radio program. The opinions expressed by Dr. Bennett on his radio program are his and his alone. More
Once again, Liberals can say most anything without the slightest repercussion (examples: AAR, Dr. Howard Dean), but if a Conservative delivers an extensive point, you can be sure the media will extrapolate one portion of it, out of context, and make that person look like a villain.

Use Google or something.It is a sad day for K12, a program that so many benefit from.

It strikes me as odd that he would not yet take advantage of his party’s majority in the Senate to pick someone like Judges Janice Rogers Brown or Priscilla Owens (or any other well credentialed Conservative). However, his choices for judicial positions have been dead-on to date, so I will trust that he has learned from his father’s error.
