Whilst kibbitzing around the Secretary of State's website the other day, I came upon an "Edtester LLC" owned by one Andrew Melin. Has anyone else heard about this? Is this old news that I'm rehashing?

"Education services, namely, conducting informal on-line programs in the fields of learning management and testing, and printed material distributed therewith."

 

Heck if I know what that means.

https://edtester.com/

 

 

We provide a safe and secure Learning Management Solution that connects Teachers, Students, Parents, and Administrators together in one platform.

 

I have no idea whether this site is the same Edtester owned by Melin.

According to this LinkedIn profile the president of EdTester is one Jake Melin, who presumably is Andrew Melin's son. Two thoughts: 1) According to the LinkedIn profile, the young Mr. Melin graduated from high school in 2016. I'd exercise caution doing business with a tech company whose president is a teenager. 2) It is important to know if any GCCS has conducted any business with this company.

In my hazy little memory, I believe gccs did business with a computer company that the son of Andrew was involved in. I truly hope I am wrong about this but it seems a contract was given or offered to get the son into the company. Again, I hope I am wrong about this. Not trying to stir the pot.

Also, on second thought, I believe that the computer teacher, Mr. Horan I believe his name to be, is turning out some quality, workforce ready individuals which is a great credit to him and the school system.
