Outcomes of a High School Entrepreneurship Curriculum
Doucet, LaRon; Hiatt-Michael, Diana B.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association (New Orleans, LA, Apr 8-12, 2011)
This study was a post-evaluation of graduates of Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE), a national program in high schools to promote entrepreneurship knowledge and skills. The study focused on graduates of the NFTE curriculum in an inner-city high school in Los Angeles County, California. Although the NFTE curriculum contains an evaluation component before and after they participate in the course, the long-term effects of the program have not been evaluated. By focusing exclusively on graduates of the NFTE program, this study sought to determine to what extent the entrepreneurship program has had an impact on their lives. Impact included high school completion, college attendance, starting a business, acquiring personal skills and values, and self-assessment of behavior change.
