Social Entrepreneurs and Educational Leadership in Bangladesh
Sperandio, Jill
Current Issues in Comparative Education, v8 n1 p18-30 Dec 2005
Social entrepreneurship, with its focus on innovative leadership, mirrors current interest in leadership for change in the field of education. In countries where national governments lack the resources to meet the educational needs of their populations, social entrepreneurs can develop innovative ways of providing access to education, and innovative methods of delivering education, to disadvantaged social groups. This article uses studies of educational projects in Bangladesh to consider the range of social entrepreneurship and what can be done to encourage and nurture social entrepreneurs in the field of education worldwide.
