This course examines the historic roots of entrepreneurship in education, looking at both the business side of entrepreneurism and the more recent emergence of social entrepreneurship. Furthermore, the course examines the current debates in the United States about the engagement of business with education, addressing such concerns as the proper role of risk, profit motives, privatization and neoliberalism. The New Orleans public school system will serve as a case study for investigation in this discussion. Students will better understand the entrepreneurial personality, the sources of innovation, and the promise and pitfalls of entrepreneurism in public K-12 schooling.
There are still six seats available, so don’t miss out on what is sure to be an incredible course! To find out more about this course, visit its page on WesMaps.
