ARTICLE: Businesspeople, Educators Seek Ways to Teach Entrepreneurship

A recent Wall Street Journal article references the current Milstein report with a focus on one proposal in particular: the idea of a K-12 entrepreneurship competition.

The author looks on the notion favorably within the context of a piece focusing on alternative entrepreneurship education. 

Commission member and RocketHub CEO Brian Meece is quoted in the article. He notes that our education system currently focuses too much on preparing students to become employees at the cost of potentially becoming employers. In his words, students should have the opportunity to "tinker, and compete in a fun, competitive landscape" as a way of jarring that mindset free.
