Entrepreneurship taught in schools?

This is a Bee on my bonnet issue. I have talked to much officials in the UK about getting Innovation, Enterprise and (below) Entrepreneurism in high school curriculum.

 Tyler Falk, writes a buzz article about the ‘E’ in Smartplanet.blog

'“Entrepreneurship is one of the fastest growing subjects in today’s undergraduate curricula,” according to the Kauffman Foundation. 

On college campuses in the United States, the number of courses on entrepreneurship have increased from 250 in 1985 to more than 5,000 by 2008 (PDF). 

But should the U.S. education system offer more of these courses earlier on in a student’s academic life?...

...NFTE’s conclusion from the results: “Entrepreneurship education is the fundamental tool for helping young people from low-income communities see a bigger future for themselves.”'

I will be head butting this into the public domain next year.

See Tylers whole article.
