  17. 17. “ We as parents and as teachers, must feel the guilt for some of the demise of the rural communities. Too many of us have been in the business of encouraging our children and our students to study hard so they can go and get good jobs. We have not worked hard enough to help them explore the possibilities of returning to their home communities some day, not in search of jobs, but in search of entrepreneurial opportunities through which they can offer jobs.”   (Dr Edwin Nelson, Director , School / Community Revitalisation Program, Nebraska, USA)

(V) Experimenting with social and business entrepreneurial ideas - idea generation and critical thinking - social entrepreneurialism - understanding the world of business - testing enterprise options
