BSE Future Policy Direction

Page history last edited by smr472@mail.harvard.edu 14 years, 7 months ago

What is next for education entrepreneurship is the creation and support of an environment that fosters innovation in education to create, what Hess calls, “the supply side of school reform?”  The problems of ineffective schooling are numerous and evident, and as Hess observes, dwarf the number of good business ideas in the offing to solve them.  While the past decade has borne witness to a variety of entrepreneurial efforts in education, the number of these efforts “pales beside the larger American education enterprise.”  Supply side reform, which refers to the generation of more choices to address school reform, requires “a stable and hospitable policy environment, investors willing to identify and nurture promising ventures, networks of technical and logistical support, talented educators, and incentives that recognize and foster quality."  The challenge for reformers is to determine how to put all of these pieces in place.
