Yes.  Here in Portland we have a new charter school working through the
bureaucracy, trying to set up on just this model:  a high school that turns
out entrepreneurs, ready for college, but also ready to go into business
(maybe in part to pay for college).  Koreducators.org is the org behind it.
I testified at the hearing, have been invited to do so again.
