Why Not Open a New School?

The prospect of opening my own school is a thrilling one.  I love the thought of choosing a site, designing the architecture, the indoor and outdoor environments, and watching a school fill with children to become a place of learning and love.

Yet, I am terrified by the financial and marketing considerations of opening and running school.  It all feels so far beyond my risk comfort level. 

These are my reasons for not opening a new school, and I know every trained guide has their own. 

I believe that researching the reasons why guides choose not to open new schools would provide invaluable insight into the kind of support that would be most helpful and encouraging.  I would like to conduct qualitative research in the form of interviews with trained guides to begin to answer this question. 

If you are a trained guide willing to be interviewed, please contact me stanford.ed@gmail.com
