Vision for Entrepreneurial Education for Children Easily and Frugally

Have you noticed that there is nothing available in government schools about financial topics? Unless, just lately, the credit card companies are invited to come in? Have you noticed that even in business schools in university, seldom is there anything for entrepreneurs? Have you noticed that entrepreneurial education, offered by entrepreneurs is very expensive? And sometimes a little deceptive? At least hard to sort out? And certainly not available to poor children. Worse, the education and mentorship available to the poor is often of the poorest quality and even teaches them CONTRARY TO what a successful business would teach them. I sure have noticed this. Repeatedly.

This could be the answer to poverty! And so much more!

If education is not about work, what is it doing?

Enter Susan Maher. She broke the mold, in my opinion, by helping the most exclusive schools see that they could help students who, while extremely bright, were not at that point producing academics as well as expected. Some direct teaching in what I call study skills and just a little accommodation, and then we have these students shining.  She has more vision. She want poor children to have access to practical, applicable business training so they can be entrepreneurs where they are.

And she has seen it work. In a project with others, a curriculum was created and taught. It works in poor areas in the US and in very poor countries. The same curriculum works in Puerto Rico and poor Chicago. It had immediate economic impact. Hear her explain how business or entrepreneurship can be taught easily and frugally to children who need it.

Explanation of CRT Critical Race Theory

Critical Race Theory is a “conflict theory” or in other words, an analysis of society based on Marxist philosophy, only substituting “white” and “of color” for capital and labor because those categories did not raise enough conflict in the US. People in the USA nearly always classify themselves as “middle class” and workers also own at least part of the means of production, so that analysis failed.

Marx wrote in Das Kapital that he did not care about founding his social analysis on science, but rather felt it was better to simply increase conflict. We see the history of his followers has done exactly that. While the change from Tsar to communist that we call “The Bolshevik” revolution was accompllshed with few deaths — mostly those of the elite, thereafter, a bloodbath followed. Even revolutionaries found themselves in prison or executed for not being of the right party.

Epoch Times, a newspaper started in communist China, reports on the fundamental characteristic of eliminating the middle in order to create conflict between the extremes. We certainly have seen that for years in the United States of America — and I always figured that someone was directly profiting from that. The leaders of our two major political parties, for instance, gave half a story to their followers, demonized the other side, saying “energize the base. ”  Thus, they got citizens fighting with each other, while the leaders, the elite, walked away with the lion’s share of the productivity. The conflict was a smoke screen in order to steal.

We could have had a dialog and worked toward smarter decisions that embraced the insights of both sides. That is not what the leaders wanted to do. We did not use the techniques of dialog or facilitated meetings. Instead, they “energized the base” and spun news reports and made narrow casting.

Now, the situation is worse. We have obvious propaganda channels constantly promoting emotion, on top of pervasive censorship of the best most scientific sources, on top of a longstanding pervasively poor educational system at all levels. Now we have mass intimidation of professionals. The elite are willing to risk a total breakdown of economics in order to enforce, illegally and unconstitutionally, something that makes not one whit of health sense. Reports from Australia and Canada, where gun rights are not embraced, are horrific.

What Rich Parents Teach Their Children

Every parent wants to set their child up for a good life. They can do that mostly by what they teach them. Giving them an inheritance of course helps, but the inheritance of mindset, worldview and knowledge and skills are even more important. This is perhaps the most practical teaching on the subject of getting rich that you will ever hear. I do have more, but I will save it for the time when more people want to hear it. If that is you, contact me. Let me know of your interest.

The summer will be over quickly. (Altho, yes, I know it is hard to imagine!) use your time with your children wisely!
