A National Entrepreneurship Education Agenda for Action. Leadership Training Series No. 66.
Ross, Novella; And Others
Entrepreneurship education and training for the existing, potential, and future entrepreneur has become increasingly in demand during the past decade. This publication is designed to assist the entrepreneurial leadership in vocational education and other constituencies interested in entrepreneurial training and/or education to form synergistic networking teams to attack the problem. The report is organized in five chapters. The first chapter discusses the need for entrepreneurship and the five stages of entrepreneurship as a lifelong process. In Chapter II, opportunities for entrepreneurship are highlighted, with projections made for the 1980s and 1990s. The issue of leadership development is also discussed. Chapter III presents an agenda for action that describes entrepreneurship education activities being conducted by Federal agencies, states, national organizations, Oklahoma State University, and the National Center for Research in Vocational Education. Benefits to be gained and challenges for the future are also described in the chapter. The fourth chapter details the action plans being implemented in the nine lead states of Colorado, Florida, Maryland, Massachusetts, Missouri, New York, Ohio, Oregon, and Texas. Fourteen recommendations that can be used to help vocational education leaders make an impact on the development of entrepreneurship are discussed in chapter V. Appendixes to the report include the U.S. Department of Education policy statement on entrepreneurship education, White House Statements by the President, and definitions of terms. References are provided. (KC)
