Disappointed (will probably be bashed but who cares)

We have 3 children. We wanted to home school, but knew that I had to be honest with myself and my inability to put together a curriculum, and help my children grow. 

So we opted for online education. 


We started with K12 with the CAVA. We already have a computer, but they sent us a computer to use as well. It was refurbished, clean, like new, and worked great. 

but we were unhappy with the curiculum, as it was moving too quickly and not flexible enough for my middle son. 

So this year we opted for Connections Academy instead. 

Everything with this school is great. Flexible enough for my middle son to take longer on lessons, but will still allow my youngest to move ahead (he is excelling) 

BUT. 

I am disappointed in the fact that we sent back the great computer from k12, to be sent a VERY crappy computer to use from connections academy. 

They are all used, and refurbished. thats fine. i love that idea. saves everyone money. 

but these are FILTHY. the keyboard is filled with crumbs and crap. the computer tower is full of dust, the screen has finger prints all over it. 

I called, thinking maybe it was a mistake. but no. they said thats what all the computers are like. 


thankfully our materials are not used. 

and the computer works. 


im sure someone will say im being ungrateful. 

but i am grateful. and we have a computer. we dont NEED this. but they sent it anyway by default.

i am simply disappointed. 



Just to clear it up, I already cleaned it up the best I could (tower is locked) 


And to the one person who commented, you are right, I cant spell curriculum without the help of spell checker. So sorry. Hence the reason I don't want to 100% traditionally home school my children.

Idk what to say. I've only ever experienced ecot. Ecot, from what I've seen, is fantastic.

Kinda sad that they couldn't clean the computer before they sent it out.

Then go out and spend YOUR money and  buy a brand new computer.

That's weird because the computer we got was really nice, we have had it for 2 years. It should be easy to clean though.
