In this age of educational accountability through standards and assessments with only one right answer and success measured by test scores, we need to keep young minds open for alternative ways of thinking, allow innovative ideas to spark and grow, to create an entrepreneurial culture that will grow great people and great communities. We need entrepreneurship education for every student, every year.
Benefits of Entrepreneurship Programme:
- Students need more opportunities for creativity, innovation, and collaboration in schools
- Students need to learn how to identify problems or needs before they learn problem solving skills
- Students need more grit.
- The world needs students who are looking to make a difference.
