The final section of Class Clowns tries to draw some conclusions from the analyses and case studies. Ten lessons are drawn that should provide guardrails to anyone seeking to play in the education domain. Broadly, the failures highlighted fall into three broad buckets: misguided ambition, misunderstood markets and faulty execution. None of these phenomena are unique to education, but their application takes on a very particular shape in the educational context.
