Sylvan throws in the towel on K12

Sylvan Learning Systems, well known for their strip-mall tutoring centers and public education contracts, is divesting the company of tutoring and other K12 ventures such as their virtual charter schools. Sylvan CEO Doug Becker was one of Reason's first Making School's Work speakers focusing on privatizing reading and math instruction in public schools. Looks like even the potential millions from the NCLB act couldn't keep Becker and crew from moving on to focus exclusively on the more profitable postsecondary market.
