Next week, I will attend the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE) Gala that will recognize young entrepreneurs and instructors who teach entrepreneurship in the classroom. Here is a link to a provocative article about whether you can teach entrepreneurship and whether it can be taught in the classroom: http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/on-small-business/can-you-really-teach-entrepreneurship/2014/03/21/51426de8-a545-11e3-84d4-e59b1709222c_story.html
The article concludes that you can teach entrepreneurship, which is definitely my position as well. Furthermore, my conclusion (based upon eight years of experience) is that a strong, comprehensive, school year classroom component is important in teaching entrepreneurship, supplemented by out-of-school activities, such as filed trips and seminars. What do you think?
