We must prepare our students for an ever-changing workplace and marketplace. Some of the world’s biggest businesses were either started in Boston or by those who at some point were educated here. It is imperative that we teach students the fundamentals of business so that they can be empowered to not only emerge from high school as workers, but as owners of their own businesses. Current trends have produced more and more young start-up businesses that break the traditional mold. Youth are becoming more business savvy- and have dreams of becoming moguls. Entrepreneurism is one path to encourage local business, create a sustainable economy and increase employment.
