The Development of Curriculum for Minorities in Small Business Ownership and Management, Post-Secondary Level. Final Report.
Green (Del) Associates, Foster City, CA.
A two-year effort was conducted to develop a curriculum for minorities in small business ownership and management on the post-secondary level. Curriculum modules, instructor guides, student information sheets, and materials were developed and designed to enable and promote the successful participation of minorities and females in the entrepreneurial field. Individual needs of the students enrolled were assessed by the instructors, and training modules were presented in an attempt to satisfy personal needs while at the same time address global needs of present and future class enrollees. Two courses were offered and both received favorable student response. The conclusions drawn were (1) there is a great demand by ethnic minorities, females, and non-minorities for instruction in this subject area; (2) the curriculum is adaptable, usable, and effective in multicultural urban and rural settings; (3) the demand is greater by persons who want the specific instruction offered rather than by persons seeking a degree; (4) the course of instruction is of proven value in the minority community in which it was tested and should be replicated on a national level; and (5) instruction of the curriculum is more effectively performed by minority persons currently active in and familiar with small business operations than by credentialled faculty persons limited to an academic orientation. (Two related documents are available and include the curriculum products, CE 017 086, and a report on the bases for curriculum decisions with an annotated bibliography, CE 017 074.) (BM)
