The entrepreneurial spirit is expanding in the art department at Minneapolis Edison High School.
Some bright students and their art and graphic-arts teacher Mark Rizzardi have expanded Edison’s homemade-yearbook business to include a student-run photo lab that provides a yearbook photo for only $10 at the northeast Minneapolis school.
The school is disproportionately populated by low-income immigrant kids and others who hail from working-poor families. Last year, only half of 200-plus Edison seniors sat for professionally taken yearbook pictures. The rest just used their student-identification photo.
