Scribbled Notes On A Cocktail Napkin: DFER Happy Hour

Things I learned at the Democrats For Education Reform happy hour on Friday in Manhattan: Green Dot founder Steve Barr is thinking about an "affiliate" model along the lines of KIPP et al in order to continue its expansion to New York and other places (Chicago?). There's yet another Green Dot profile coming out next week -- this one from Forbes. Joe Williams is a gracious host. Why the picture of Lindsay Lohan, the tabloid media's current obsession? Because right now Green Dot founder Steve Barr is education's LiLo-- minus the stints in rehab and ankle bracelet (so far). Or, I may still be drunk from the weekend. Either way, imagine if Barr could get a photo op with Lohan, or -- even better -- an endorsement?

UPDATE: Here's the Forbes article.
