Pushing the Entrepreneurial Prodigy: Canadian Aboriginal Entrepreneurship Education Initiatives
Pinto, Laura Elizabeth; Blue, Levon Ellen
Critical Studies in Education, v57 n3 p358-375 2016
Globally, neoliberal education policy touts youth entrepreneurship education as a solution for staggering youth unemployment, a means to bolster economically depressed regions, and solution to the ill-defined changing marketplace. Many jurisdictions have emphasized a need for K-12 entrepreneurial education for the general population, and targeted to youth labeled "at risk." The Martin Aboriginal Education Initiative's Aboriginal Youth Entrepreneurship Program (AYEP) has been enacted across Canada. This paper applies critical discourse analysis to a corpus of texts, exposing how colonial practices, deficit discourse, and discursive neoliberalism are embedded and perpetuated though entrepreneurial education targeted at Aboriginal students via AYEP.
