As an educator I often like to take a step back and look at the big picture by asking myself questions. One such question that has been on my mind lately is whether or not we are effectively preparing today’s students for an economy that is continually transforming. Last night’s #EastCoastEd conversation gave me a considerable amount of information to digest, and has encouraged me to evaluate what opportunities we provide our students.
I’ve been lucky enough to witness the value of the Entrepreneurship course when taught by a passionate teacher. In some cases this course serves as a catalyst for students to choose a different path. Finding relevance in the curriculum is often difficult for students, and many of them have a hard time seeing the world beyond the walls of their classrooms.
