LEANLAB Education pairs innovative solutions with the most pressing needs of K-12 schools. By listening to parents, teachers, students, and administrators in the Kansas City region, we are able to pinpoint specific problems that hinder students’ achievement and, informed by this data, we find education entrepreneurs with promising innovations and help them develop their product through direct, community feedback. In this way, we lean on the communities we serve, while working to create swift, efficient-lean-change.
