Dr. J.D. LaRock, President and CEO of Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship, shares five things that should be done to improve the U.S. educational system. Expand entrepreneurship education to all middle and high schools. As we talk to constituents each year, we hear thousands of times some iteration of the phrase: “I wish I had NFTE in my school.” Why isn’t it in every school? Shouldn’t that be the case, especially in America, where we value self-efficacy, self-motivation, and self-fulfillment? Doing so would absolutely lead to a tidal wave of economic productivity, inclusion, and societal success.
Cheer on 46 competing businesses by attending this year’s NFTE National Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge on October 3 in New York! Young entrepreneurs from around the country will pitch innovative ideas to VIP judges.
