Zondle financial crunch holds hope for future of education startups
Thousands of teachers and children worldwide were shocked to learn that popular games-for-learning website Zondle would close at the end of July. Startup education projects were dismayed too because Zondle is one of the brightest stars in the new wave of entrepreneurial education services.
But a massive, supportive teacher response jolted the key entrepreneur behind the service, Ben Barton, into a U-turn. "I am going to do everything in my power to make sure Zondle continues," was his response.
