I can not answer all of your questions, however I would refer you to the recent article(s) about education in the current issue of Forbes. The authors' premise is that K-12 education will be going through revolutionary change to an on-line format. Basically capturing and distributing the "best teachers and their lectures" from throughout the world. This would allow administrators to easily create custom materials for all students, regardless of educational learning styles. Thus, finally being able to put Howard Gardners'(sp?) theories to practical use. Somewhat like the current business model of Apollo Group, except k-12.
If this proves correct, and if BBBB can get a piece of the action, they should do very well. Of course this is all premised on the educational establishment and stakeholders deciding that it is time to do something positive about the sorry state of k-12 education in the United States, not a given. The winners are kids, parents, and tax payers. The losers teachers, their unions, and the educational establishment.
