Education, Teaching Entrepreneurship and Indigenous Peoples

    Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapterpeer-review

    Abstract

    This chapter questions the effectiveness of mainstream education programs when we look at the outcomes of empirical research by the author on some 660 Australian Aboriginal enterprise case studies and over 150 Hawaiian or workplace - industry training is a key factor in developing the human and social capital of successful Indigenous businesspeople. Yet forma education as we know it ... as we teach it in Australia has failed, and is failing Indigenous children, as revealed to us by the plethora of research in this area.
