Education 3.0 – Out to Lunch – It’s New Orleans

The world of New Orleans education is changing. For elementary, middle, and high schools that change has been so radical that we’ve become global pioneers in charter education.

There’s another education transformation going on that you might be less familiar with. It’s a parallel universe. Of paradoxes. They’re educational entrepreneurial ventures – that are nonprofit. Organizations that integrate into the education system – but aren’t a part of it. Two of these intriguing new ventures are here in New Orleans.
