What School Model Designers Can Learn from Food Trucks

We talk to companies all the time about how they test their products, fail quickly and learn. That’s iteration, and it’s at that heart of design solid way to figure out where an edtech product will stick.

But what if schools did the same thing? What if  prospective school leaders with ideas for new models tested concepts on a small scale, while getting feedback from parents and students? 

That's exactly the concept behind the "Tiny Schools Project,” an initiative led by Matt Candler of the New Orleans-based nonprofit, 4.0 Schools. Mary Jo sat down with Matt, who spoke about how the project helps schools perfect their models more quickly.
