    Franchise Interviews Meets with the KLA Schools Franchise Concept

    in Entrepreneur

    KLA Schools is an upscale preschool catering to children three months of age up to age six. KLA schools offers innovative early child care facilities along with a unique approach to early childhood education. The KLA Schools concept is inspired by cutting-edge educational philosophies including the Reggio Emilia Approach.



    KLA is building a world-class franchise organization that sets new standards for excellence within the children's educational services industry.


    Heavy reliance upon the Reggio Emilia Approach provides KLA with a different method than what has become the standard in American daycare and preschool franchises. Many parents who are seeking the best for their children are drawn to KLA's new system and the inspirational design of the schools. While childcare and preschool centers often lay claim to having a superior education program or curriculum, few back up this claim with a concrete, verifiable explanation.  We are meeting with Roberto Ortega, CEO and co-founder of KLA Schools.

  • Our Urban High Schools Are Failing Us: What Now?

    in Education

    Our guest in August is Dr. Camille Farrington - Senior Research Associate, Consortium on Chicago School Research, will discuss her research on urban high schools.  She will discuss the psychological and systematic barriers to success and the ways we might redesign these schools for greater success with adolescents.  Given that the model we currently use is more than 100 years old, she proposes some innovative solutions to the roadblocks faced in many urban centers.  Join us at 2pm EST on August 12 for what promises to be a enlightening discussion.


    Camille A. Farrington is a Senior Research Associate at the University of Chicago, Consortium on Chicago School Research (CCSR), studying policy and practice in urban high school reform. She is a national expert on “noncognitive” factors in academic settings. Dr. Farrington is the author of Failing at School: Lessons for Redesigning Urban High Schools (2014, Teachers College Press); lead author of Teaching Adolescents to Become Learners: The Role of Noncognitive Factors in Shaping School Performance (2012, CCSR); and co-author of Foundations for Young Adult Success: A Developmental Framework (2015, CCSR). Throughout her work, Dr. Farrington draws on fifteen years’ experience as a public high school teacher and National Board Certified Teacher Mentor. She received a B.A. from the University of California Santa Cruz, teacher certification from Mills College, and a Ph.D. in Policy Studies in Urban Education from the University of Illinois at Chicago.

    Saving Dyett: Are Public Schools Being Taken Over By Private Business?

    in Women

    Has public education become big business at the expense of our children? Dyett High School in Chicago is just one of many public schools in danger of closing and being reopened as a privately owned institution. Some say that's good - the more private institutions we have, the more control we have over our children's education. But private schools, unless heavily financed by large corporations, tend to fail because schools rely on families to meet budget requirements through tuition. When tuition costs rise, families leave the school and this creates a greater financial burdon on the remaining families. The downward spiral effect leads to good private schools closing. In areas where coporations have taken over the schools and made them private, many local children are excluded from attending. Jitu Brown, National Director for the Journey For Justice Alliance, is working with the Kenwood Oakland Community Organization (KOCO) to insure that Dyett remains a viable public school, and is not closed and reopened as a private, corporately owned school that excludes neighborhood students.
