I know what's going on with my own kids and the KA content. Mocking that content, while producing nothing else as worthy alternative that I can find, is counter-productive at best and offends me at its worst. If they think something different is better, why didn't they produce a video that explains that and then -- better yet -- offer that up as an alternative?

> What if they don't think that rote e-learning is an effective way of learning (something that is greatly supported by the evidence)?

I don't care about criticism of KA, I care about results for my kids. And I see positive results, so I have my own evidence that's contradictory, I guess. Given my "wild ignorance" of the education community, that's apparently the only measure I can use anyway, right?
