Yolanda Puno, president of Cradle Top Learning School, has been operating the school for six years, but at a loss. She’s taken on loans that are becoming unsustainable in light of the school’s operating expenses and decreasing number of enrollees. Students examine the school’s mission, organizational structure, enrollment, and competitors – assessing its strengths and weaknesses – as they recommend possible solutions to Puno’s predicament.
